Financial Aid & Scholarships


Pope John Paul II High School annually awards tuition assistance to families who show financial need through an application process. Scholarships and Financial Aid are divided into three categories:


  • Academic Scholarships
  • Financial Aid
  • Other Scholarships and Grants.


This aid is directed to tuition only and does not cover fees and other expenses. While part of this amount is awarded as four year academic scholarships to outstanding performers on the scholarship exam, by far the larger part of tuition assistance goes to students as need based grants.


FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia/BLOCS & Pope John Paul II High School for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by December 31st for early financial aid decisions!


Aid for the 2019-2020 school year will be processed by FACTS Grant and Aid. All need-based awards will be contingent on reception of the most recent tax return. 


Income guidelines for EITC /OSTC programs are as follows:


  • Household income: $90,000
  • One dependent: $105,842
  • Two dependents: $121,684
  • Three dependents: $137,526
