AoOL Tuition Assistance Plan (TAP)  -  DEADLINE APRIL 30, 2024 for the 2024/2025 School Year
The Tuition Assistance Program is a yearly commitment that the Academy makes to keep our school accessible and affordable. This commitment is the hallmark of our faith and service to the educational mission of the Church.  The program was designed to assist K-8 families with the cost of Catholic education.  In order to qualify for the Tuition Assistance Program, families must demonstrate need through an online application. The Academy uses an outside company to determine a family’s eligibility to keep financial information confidential and to make the selection process objective.  Please keep in mind that there is a limited amount of funding available for students registered at AoOL. Ladies Night Out, an HSA fundraiser, is TAP's largest source of funding.
