A Catholic education is within your family’s reach

A competitive, caring school experience is more affordable than you think. At Diocese of Allentown Catholic Schools, we offer surprisingly low tuition rates and generous scholarship opportunities — so your child can enjoy an excellent education without the weight of heavy fees.



Join nearly 1,500 families receiving tuition assistance

Last year, local families received a total of $5.8 million in funding from the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholarship Foundation (EPSF). The organization awards nearly 1,500 scholarships yearly to students attending Diocese of Allentown elementary and secondary schools, special learning centers, and pre-kindergarten programs.

To qualify, families must meet the following requirements:

  • Student(s) must be enrolled in a Diocese of Allentown Catholic School.
  • Household income cannot exceed $105,000 for families with one dependent. That amount increases by $18,514 for each additional household dependent.
  • Student(s) must be school-aged, ranging from kindergarten to 12th  grade. Pre-kindergarten students three and older qualify for the pre-K program. 


Support local students. Receive a tax credit.

EPSF awards are fully funded by local businesses and individuals. By supporting deserving families, you can get tax credits through either the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program or Opportunity Tax Credit (OSTC) program.

Every dollar of every donation goes towards supporting a Diocese of Allentown school student. And your $500 donation translates into a $5,000 scholarship to a school, or multiple schools, of your choice.
