Tuition Assistance Program

Bishop Flores Scholars: Making a Difference

In 2016, the Bishop Flores Scholars Fund will provide one million dollars in tuition assistance to children in the Diocese of San Diego. The 2017-2018 school year will mark the third year of the “Bishop Flores Scholars Tuition Assistance Program,” which provides limited tuition assistance to qualifying families. This assistance is available ONLY for families entering Kindergarten-8th Grade in September 2017; awards will not be given to children enrolling in Preschool in September 2017.

Families may apply for the Bishop Flores Scholars Tuition Assistance Program beginning January 2, 2017 through February 28, 2017. It’s a short window, so do not wait to apply. If you plan on seeking tuition assistance from St. Mary, Star of the Sea Elementary School for 2017/2018 , you must first apply to the Bishop Flores Tuition Assistance Program before applying to the school for assistance.

You may apply for this program through the website: If you have any questions, please talk to the elementary office at 760-722-7259.
