Caritas Scholars Program for New St. Damian Students

Choosing Catholic education is an investment in your child’s future.

St. Damian School is honored to partner with the Archdiocese of Chicago, and new families to share in the journey of empowering the next generation of compassionate thinkers and community leaders, regardless of household income.

Who is eligible?

Families enrolling their children in St. Damian School in grades K-8 for the upcoming fall.

What is the amount of support for a Caritas scholar?

Scholarships may cover up to 50% of a student’s tuition and scholarships are guaranteed for three years, provided the student remains in good standing.

How should a family apply for Caritas Scholarship?

Even if  you already have a SMART Tuition account you need to re-register for the website.  If you have never registered through SMART Tuition you must create a new account.

Go to:

1. Everyone must register as a new family
2. St. Damian’s Id number is 10967
3. Change application date to 2015-2016
4.  Fill out application

Once the application is filled out and all tax paperwork is sent in, contact the school office and we will watch for a response from SMART Tuition.

 We hope you will consider applying for the Caritas Scholarship.

We would love to have your family join our St. Damian Family!
