TUITION & ASSISTANCE
We are very excited to be joining with the Diocese of Biloxi in offering ACE Scholarships. ACE of Mississippi offers partial tuition scholarships for private school students based on financial eligibility. ACE has been around since 2000, but has just recently launched in Mississippi for the 2023-2024 school year. The application for an ACE scholarship can be completed through your FACTS account.
Through the generosity of our benefactors, a number of scholarships are granted each year to students who otherwise would be unable to attend Our Lady Academy.
The following endowed scholarships have been established:
Sisters of Mercy
Clyde J. Cucullu
Mary Patricia Schmidt
In addition to financial need, students receiving assistance are expected to achieve to the best of their abilities in the classroom and contribute to a positive culture in the school.
Parents can apply for these scholarships using the FACTS website.
Parish Needs-Based Assistance
The Catholic parishes provide needs-based assitance to parishioners who (1) have been registered in the parish for at least 6 months prior to the request for tuition assistance, (2) attend church regularly in the parish in which they are registered, and (3) are identifiable givers and supporters of their parish. To apply, please contact your parish office.
