We at St. Barnabas School understand it is a choice and investment to provide your students a Catholic education. Academic excellence, along with the reinforcement of Catholic faith and formation, a St. Barnabas education provides a foundation for personal success. The decision to provide a student with these foundations also coincides with financial sacrifice. The Diocese of Cleveland is able to offer opportunities for tuition assistance to help ease family financial burdens for those that qualify.

Diocesan Tuition Assistance & St. Barnabas Parish Tuition Grants

Diocesan Tuition Assistance is available for those who qualify. The Diocesan Tuition Assistance program offers needs-based financial assistance to families with K-12 students attending a Catholic school in the Diocese of Cleveland. These funds are raised through the generosity of donors and the work of the Catholic Community Foundation. The program also funds several scholarship opportunities, offers assistance designated for teachers and others working in a Diocese of Cleveland Catholic School, as well as an emergency assistance fund for families facing unexpected hardships. Funds are distributed in two rounds.  The deadline for round one completed applications is March 15, 2023. Begin your application at, or the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Financial Aid & Scholarships website for more information.

Diocesan Tuition Assistance is awarded annually. Applications for the 2023-24 academic year are accepted from January – June 1, 2023.  Funds are awarded based on financial need. In the 2021-22 academic year, nearly $3.5 million was distributed to 4,000 students in the Catholic Diocese. Please view the Diocesan Tuition Assistance document to learn more.

St. Barnabas Parish Tuition Grants

St. Barnabas Church sets aside some limited funds to assist students enrolled in our school.  To be eligible for this aid, families have to be registered members of St. Barnabas, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, SS. Cosmas and Damian Parish or Mother of Sorrows Church with no delinquent tuition or fees owed. The family must also have first applied for Diocesan Tuition Aid as the same financial information is used to determine eligibility.  No separate application is needed.

Please contact St. Barnabas at (330) 467-7921 if you have any questions.
