Affordability

We offer an automatic tuition discounts for families with 2 or more children enrolled at St. John the Baptist. Families with students in multiple programs should apply for a tuition assistance grant (i.e. Toddler and Elementary, Children’s House and Elementary, etc.).

We offer many generous tuition assistance grants thanks to the generosity of the greater St. John’s community. TADS is the secure and safe company we use to collect the required information to complete a tuition assistance package. Click “Apply for Financial Aid” in the application.

Last Year of Preschool?

Please visit the Schulze Family Foundation website to learn more. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are no longer being accepted. The 2023-2024 school year application will open up in the Fall of 2022. Please contact the school at school@stjohns-excelsior.org for more information.

K-8 Scholarships

Knights of Columbus Grant Application

As a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, there are funds available through the Father Cushen Catholic Schools Grant for grades K-8. Please view the document here to find out more.

Aim Higher Foundation Scholarship

The Aim Higher Foundation provides scholarships to children whose families are seeking tuition assistance for a K-8 Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Find out more information here.

On May 31, 2022, the Aim Higher Foundation’s summer application opens. The application process for families in the summer is exactly the same as the primary period with two changes. First, scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis through early August instead of awarding after the application closes. Second, priority will be given to families who are new to Catholic schools; however, returning families may still apply. Find out more information here.

Applications are available through mytads.com or by contacting St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School. Once an application is submitted, it is necessary for each individual or family to submit specific documents which help the Aim Higher Foundation determine whether or not the student is qualified.

The last awarding of reserve fund scholarships will take place on Friday, May 13. As a reminder, the Reserve Fund is available for any students who have recently experienced sudden and unexpected hardship. The scholarship is $1,000 and it does turn into an Aim Higher scholarship the following year, should the student still be in need. Please contact the school office at school@stjohns-excelsior.org to fill out an application.
