We empower parents with choice, providing a character formation education where their children are instilled with Catholic values, so that one day they may contribute to the Church and society as globally aware citizens.
We believe that Catholic education should be both affordable and accessible to every child and family who desires it regardless of their background, neighborhood, family income, or culture. We offer tuition assistance to San Diego and Imperial County children in grades K-8 who come from both low and middle-income families, increasing their statistical chance of graduating high school and attending college.

In 2019 the Bishop Flores Program will provide tuition assistance to children attending Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of San Diego.
K-8 TUITION ASSISTANCE
The Bishop Flores Program will provide tuition assistance in 2019-2020, focused on developing sustainable financial partnerships with families. Our tuition assistance will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis of financial need. The awards are based on household size and income, with grants up to $500 for a single child and $1000 maximum per multi-child family.
“We are now raising socially conscious children who understand the bigger problems of our society. That is why I sacrifice so much and why my kids have big ambitions and big dreams.”
Do I Qualify?
The goal of our tuition assistance program is to assist families in need that are struggling with the financial burden of Catholic education in the Diocese of San Diego. We want to partner with families that can contribute in some manner to the education costs, but need added help in order to make it happen. Tuition assistance will be given to Catholic elementary students who demonstrate the greatest financial need. Families who qualify will be eligible for awards of $500 for a single child and $1000 maximum per multi-child family. Students must identify which school they are interested in attending in order to receive tuition assistance, must be current in their tuition payments, and approved by the principal or pastor. Tuition assistance will be given based on greatest demonstrated need. If you have any questions about our qualification guidelines, please check out our FAQ page, or just contact us.
