Parish Support

Forms are mailed with acceptance letters. The form needs to be signed by your parish priest and returned to Nashua Catholic BEFORE March 1 of each year for consideration at the Diocesan level. Only Catholics in the Diocese of Manchester who meet the following parish criteria shall be eligible for the sponsorship rate.

The criteria, at minimum, is:

  • Registration in parish or mission
  • Contributor of record in parish or mission
  • Active participation in the life of parish

Financial Support

All families with a financial need are encouraged to apply for financial aid.  The financial aid application process begins in January for the following school year.  To apply, parents must check the following in this order:

1.   If you qualify, apply to the Children’s Scholarship Fund here. The CSF is a source of financial assistance for families in need in New Hampshire.  Awards are made on a first come, first served basis.  Application process for new scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year will open January 1, 2019.

Children’s Scholarship Fund creates educational scholarships to assist families who wish to move their children from public schools into private schools.

NOTE:  This financial assistance is not determined or distributed by Nashua Catholic and it is not for assisting students already attending our school.  It is to enable parents who wish to move their children from public schools to private schools to receive financial assistance in addition to whatever the school might be able to offer.  Once a child receiving financial aid from CSF has enrolled in Nashua Catholic, CSF is committed to providing financial assistance to the family to enable the child to stay at Nashua Catholic. 

The  re-qualification deadline for the 2019-2020 school year is May 1, 2019.  The deadline to apply for the first time in the 2019-2020 school year is June 1, 2019. 

2.  Apply to Nashua Catholic Financial Aid through FACTS online here.

Nashua Catholic uses the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Program to help evaluate a family’s ability to contribute toward their child’s education. With the help of FACTS, Nashua Catholic makes the fairest possible determination regarding the level of assistance it can offer. The process involves balancing individual need, the number of families applying and the total available aid.

This application must be submitted to Nashua Catholic by March 1 for full consideration.

FACTS charges $35 to complete the aid application for the 2019-2020 year.  

529 Tuition Savings Plans

Effective January 1, 2018, expenses covered by 529 accounts (historically known as “college” savings accounts/plans) have been expanded to include elementary and secondary school tuition.  People may now use up to $10,000, each calendar year, from a 529 account for K-12 tuition (public, private, or religious). 

If you are not familiar with 529 plans, investment earnings in a 529 plan are not subject to federal capital gains tax and generally not taxed by state governments when used for qualified education expenses. Thus becoming a great tax-advantaged way for families to save for education expenses for their children (or even grandchildren).
