Please note: for each school year, if you apply for multiple financial aid programs utilizing FACTS, you pay the $30 grant & aid application fee only once.
AoOL Tuition Assistance Plan (TAP)
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. FACTS will notify the school of the applicant’s eligibility. 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.
Please apply by April 30, 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year.
Tri County Scholarship
Academy of Our Lady students who live in Passaic, Sussex and Morris County are invited to apply for the Tri County Scholarship Fund by February 15, 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year. Students entering K-8 in September may apply. Eighth-graders may apply if their High School is on the approved list.
The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children
The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children invites you to apply by April 30, 2018 for children attending school in the Archdiocese of Newark for the 2018-19 school year.

On December 22, 2017, the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was signed into law.
