FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia/BLOCS & Holy Family Regional Catholic School for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.

Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.

March 15, 2018 - Application process closes

Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link at:

For more information, please go to our website:

  • The SMART Tuition Buy Now button is the ONLY method of payment for pretzels each month. The default is to pay by credit card.  However, you can also choose to add a bank account. Using a credit card charges a convenience fee while paying via a bank account DOES NOT.

Did you know that Holy Family collects box tops?  We are always looking to collect boxtops to help our school!  When you collect them, please make sure to look at the expiration date and cut carefully on the dotted lines.  

HSA needs your help!  
If you have not viewed the Google Doc that has been created, please do so.  If we cannot find Parent Volunteers, many of our fun activities may have to be canceled.  We cannot do it without you!  Thank you to all who have already volunteered.
