Financial Aid

Families who are Catholic and verified as active members of an Albany diocesan parish may apply for financial assistance. We have several sources of financial aid at the school and diocesan level. Financial need is verified through filing an application with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Service.

How FACTS works

FACTS is a third party company contracted by the Albany diocese to conduct an independent financial analysis to determine your family’s financial need.  Mater Christi School receives a confidential report outlining your financial situation based on information obtained in your application and supporting tax documents.  This report allows our administration to allocate our financial aid funds appropriately to help those families who demonstrate the most documented need.

Benefits of FACTS

  • Process is quick and easy
  • Apply online
  • Call center for application assistance (Spanish speaking reps available)
  • All children listed on one application for any Diocesan school
  • Safe, secure, confidential

Application Forms
Parents can complete the application on the FACTS website.


Note: To access the application, you will need to create a username and password for the FACTS website.  There is a $30 non-refundable application fee.
