Admission Department and Process - Resurrection School - Sunnyvale

Tuition, Aid, & Affordability

Resurrection School is committed to providing financial aid to our families desiring a Catholic education for their children. Financial Aid is available for families through the Diocese of San Jose, the Drexel Tuition Assistance Fund, the Basic Fund Group, and the school itself. Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Financial aid decisions at the Diocesan and school level are guided by the family’s financial data submitted to FACTS and reviewed by the school’s financial aid administrative committee.

  • Applying for tuition assistance has no impact on admission decisions.
  • Tuition assistance is awarded purely based on financial need that is assessed by FACTS.
  • Families are required to re-apply for financial assistance every year.

Diocese of San Jose Assistance - The Diocese of San Jose offers tuition assistance based upon need to qualifying families throughout all the elementary schools in the Diocese of San Jose. This resource is typically accompanied by aid from the school and if needed, the Drexel Foundation.

The Hellwig Family Education Fund - In 2013, Resurrection School and the Diocese of San Jose were the recipients of an planned gift from one of our long-time parishioners, Ray Hellwig. Mr. Hellwig and his wife felt strongly about the values of a Catholic education. With the support of their generous gift, their goal of providing tuition assistance to those families in need and the ability to minimize tuition increases allows their support to touch every single family at Resurrection School.. We are forever grateful to the Hellwig family for their faith and support of the education Resurrection School provides to our community.

Drexel Tuition Assistance Fund - The Drexel School System is pleased to offer tuition assistance to qualifying families who are committed partners in our Drexel Schools.  When funding is available, the Drexel School System is able to make an annual allocation for families who demonstrate financial need as determined by FACTS.  The maximum amount of the scholarship will be dependent upon the funds available for awarding.  The Drexel Tuition Assistance Fund is designed to assist families who are unable to afford Catholic education after receiving Diocesan and/or School Site level aid.  Contact the school office for additional information.

The Basic Fund - The BASIC Fund is a privately funded organization providing partial-tuition scholarships to low-income families across the Bay Area, helping them afford the cost of tuition at the private school of their choice. This program is intended as a helping hand for families enrolling their children at a private school for the first time.

Resurrection School Aid - Resurrection School annually budgets financial aid to assist families in our school community wishing to obtain a Catholic education for their children.   To apply for school aid, families must submit their financials to FACTS and FACTS provides the school principal and the financial aid administrative committee with a report to assist in the evaluation and distribution of school aid. Catholic families actively involved in Resurrection Church and parish are also eligible for the “In-parish” tuition rate. Contact the school office for more information on financial aid or link to these two sites: Diocesan financial aid forms and Basic Fund financial aid forms.

For the 2017-18 school year $185,000 in various forms of assistance has been distributed to 25% of our students.
