St. Albert the Great utilizes an online, web-based portal, FACTS Tuition Management Services.
This web-based service allows parents to register for a payment plan and/or make a full payment via the web. It is hosted on secure servers and is accessible through your online FACTS account. Throughout the year, parents can log in to a password-protected site to check the status of their account, pay tuition and fees online, update demographic information, switch payment methods if preferred, and more -- all with the click of a mouse. This password-protected and encrypted site gives parents a full report of payments made, those still scheduled, and any account adjustments.
All families are required to create a FACTS online account for managing their tuition payments.

School Office:  (708) 424-7757



Three types of Financial Assistance are available:

1. SATG Endowment: Aid is determined by committee, with a structured plan in place, based upon need on a case-by-case basis.

2. CARITAS Scholarship: Aid is determined by need by the Archdiocese of Chicago, on a case-by-case basis.

3. TAX CREDIT Scholarship: Aid is determined by need through a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). Please go to: for more detailed information.  



Parents of students receiving assistance are required to:

  • pay all fees
  • pay for mandatory fundraising
  • be responsible for a portion of their child's tuition
  • participate in some of the many volunteer opportunities in our St. Albert the Great community


Current  families receiving financial aid must re-apply to receive financial aid each year, as an annual renewal is not automatic or guaranteed. As long as a family continues to demonstrate need, St. Albert the Great will continue to attempt to consider any assistance possible.

All information is kept strictly confidential.

To be considered for ANY financial aid, you must complete the FACTS Tuition Aid Application that is located on the

FACTS website at:


FOR THE SATG Endowment and the CARITAS Scholarship:

* You must apply online through FACTS (see above)

All financial documentation should be submitted to FACTS

Your current year tuition must be in good standing

Your child must be registered for the next year you are applying


The SATG Endowment and CARITAS Financial Aid Applications must be completed by April 30, 2018.

After April 30th, there is no guarantee that financial aid will be available.

Families will be notified of their Financial Aid package by May 31, 2018.



Please go to: for more detailed information.

Application process:

All families will need to apply for tax credit scholarships through a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), which will manage this process, instead of the Archdiocese or your school directly. There are several SGOs in Illinois. The Archdiocese of Chicago is working with two SGOs: Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders Fund, BUT parents are encouraged to apply to as many as possible.

EMPOWER ILLINOIS: The application process with Empower Illinois will be completed online at

BIG SHOULDERS FUND:  The application process opened on January 22, 2018. Due to an overwhelming amount of applicants, the Big Shoulders Fund website is no longer taking applications until further notice. If the site reopens, applications with Big Shoulders Fund will be completed online at


What families will need to apply (see flyer below for more detailed information):

  • 2016 tax return

  • Proof of residency (i.e. driver's license or state ID)

  • Birth certificate, federal/state ID or passport for student

  • If available, a letter of acceptance or enrollment at an eligible, participating, non-public school




For families needing more flexibility and consideration, there are a few ways that we work with our families:

PARENT WORK PROGRAM - St. Albert the Great does as much as possible to make school affordable for all families.  Parents in need of assistance may enroll in our work program if slots are available.  Slots are limited, but all efforts are made to work with the individual needs and availability of our parents. Please call Mrs. Krol in the main office if you would like to be considered for our Parent Work Program.  (708) 424-7757

FLEXIBILITY - The St. Albert the Great School Finance Committee works individually with all families to ensure that payments can be made and kept current.  Each family has different needs and limitations.  Our Finance Committee will assist you by offering flexibility in your payments.  The Committee has set up flex payment scheduling through the FACTS Tuition Management system as well.  When you sign up for FACTS online, you may indicate your flex payment schedule.  If you need a more flexible schedule, please contact our Finance Committee at (708) 529-5506 or email at:
