Financial Aid

Alleman High School strives to keep tuition and fees as affordable as possible for families.  We also are committed to maximizing financial assistance opportunities for families so that finances do not determine whether a student receives an Alleman education.  Tuition Assistance Applications are handled in a confidential manner and awards are based on financial need.  

There are three (3) Tuition Assistance resources for parents to apply to for the 2018/19 school year.  All three programs are independent of each other and must be applied for separately. To maximize your assistance opportunities, it is critical that the application processes are followed and deadlines are met.  It is also important to note that receiving or not receiving financial assistance from one program does not guarantee or limit you from receiving assistance from other programs.

IMPORTANT! All three grants are for one year only and need to be reapplied for annually!

• A copy of their Federal Tax Return
• Proof of Illinois Residency
• Enrollment or acceptance letter from the private school(s) their students will attend

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Service is an independent company that helps schools process and evaluate tuition assistance applications for both the John Lancaster Spalding and the Alleman Tuition Assistance Program.  FACTS is used by all the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Peoria.  If you have students attending Alleman as well as one of our partner schools (Jordan, Our Lady of Grace, or Seton) you only need to complete the FACTS application one time per year.  Please make sure all children from your family and the schools they attend are listed in Section 2 of the FACTS application.
