  • Tuition Payment History


Parents who received tuition assistance in previous school years but did not fulfill their financial obligation to PCAS will not be granted an further tuition assistance.  In addition, receipt of tuition assistance in previous years does not guarantee assistance or assistance with the same value for this year.  Please note: as a family's financial situation may change, it is necessary to apply for assistance each year.
