St. Patrick - St. Vincent High School
Skip to main content

St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School has provided North Bay and East Bay families with a quality, college preparatory education for over 150 years. In addition to a rigorous academic program, SPSV provides a slate of competitive athletic teams, creative visual and performing arts classes, a strong service-learning program, and additional student leadership and extra-curricular opportunities.

We at SPSV want to provide these opportunities to all who are interested. We are also committed to keeping tuition affordable. We have partnered with educational resources and private entities in an effort to provide additional support to families in need of financial assistance.


Tuition Assistance

SPSV uses an independent service bureau called FACTS to process tuition assistance applications, analyze the information, calculate the levels of financial need, and provide recommendations.

We begin accepting financial aid applications November 1st. In order to receive a decision on or before March 1st, a completed application must be received by January 31, 2023.

To be considered for tuition assistance, complete the online FACTS application and submit your supporting documents by the January 31, 2023, deadline. If you plan on mailing your documents, please apply at least two weeks before the deadline.

The Review Process

After you complete the application and FACTS receives all requested supporting documents, they will contact you if they have any questions. Then they will evaluate your application and forward it to SPSV with their recommendation. After receiving the entire FACTS report, our tuition assistance committee will review it. The tuition assistance committee respects the confidentiality of all applicants and shares information with others only on a need-to-know basis.

Given the school’s tuition assistance budget, the committee decides on a case-by-case basis whether to award assistance and, if so, the amount of the award. SPSV makes every effort to reduce our families' financial burden.

Notification of Awards

The school will begin making notifications of tuition assistance awards by March 1, 2023. (Notifications regarding late applications may be delayed.)

Additional Support


The One Campaign Scholarship is an opportunity offered by the Diocese of Sacramento and is made possible in part by the support and generosity of our Catholic community. Each school in the diocese has the opportunity to nominate students for this scholarship.

In order to apply, please refer to the One Campaign Scholarship Checklist and provide all appropriate documentation to SPSV's Scholarship Committee. A complete FACTS application is a pre-requisite for the One Campaign Scholarship, and applications must be postmarked by April 30, 2023.
