The QND Foundation manages over 145 financial assistance scholarships benefiting QND students. The amount of financial assistance available for the 2020-21 school year will be increased. More than$230,000 in financial aid was awarded to 35% of QND students in the 2019-20 school year.

To ensure impartiality and sensitivity to privacy, QND employs FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis, to determine your family’s financial need. Recommended amounts (up to 40% of tuition) are awarded based on demonstrated need.

The same application can be used for the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools – Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis and St. Peter. (When selecting multiple schools, search by Quincy, IL for complete QCES listing.) There is a one-time $32 non-refundable application fee per family. FACTS accepts all major Credit Cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover). Applications must be submitted by April 30, 2020.
