Bishop Kelley is committed to a need-based tuition assistance program that enables qualified students from all cultural, racial and socioeconomic groups to attend our school. All tuition assistance applications and information are kept in strict confidence, both by the school and by those who apply.

Bishop Kelley’s funding for this program comes from many generous donations to the diocesan St. Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance program, the Bishop Kelley Tuition Assistance Fund, and many immediate assistance donations.

2022 - 2023 Tuition Assistance

Applications for Tuition Assistance are processed through FACTS Management.  The link is here: FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.  Please note there is a $35 application fee. FACTS has a Spanish Language conversion button in the top right corner of the screen.

The application and all required supporting documents are due by April 15, 2022. 

Review and notification will be completed no later than mid-May. Tuition assistance applications and the review process are confidential. Families who complete a FACTS application after April 15th will be awarded assistance based upon availability of funds and demonstrated need.

All Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Tulsa use the same FACTS Grant & Aid application.  If you are completing a FACTS application at another school, there is no need to fill out a second. Simply add your BK student on your application, and it will be routed to the school. 

Bishop Kelley encourages everyone to submit an application for tuition assistance.  Families with a demonstrated financial need likely will receive tuition assistance.  Bishop Kelley is committed to working with families to assist with making your child a Comet for life.
