Eastside Catholic is committed to making tuition affordable for students from all economic backgrounds through merit awards and need-based tuition assistance grants.

List of 2 items.

  • Merit Awards

    Eastside Catholic offers merit awards that do not require any demonstrated financial need. Awards are granted to top scholars who demonstrate excellence, character and the qualities laid out in our mission and touchstones. Students will be automatically considered when they apply for admission. No separate award application is required for new students, and all accepted applicants who qualify will receive an award. Learn more about merit award opportunities here.
  • Tuition Assistance Grants

    Eastside Catholic offers tuition assistance grants based on demonstrated financial need. Tuition assistance is not a loan, but rather a reduction in the amount of tuition paid by a parent.
    To be considered for a tuition assistance grant, parents must complete an online application and provide information through the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS) website provided by the National Association of Independent Schools. Eastside Catholic uses the SSS service to process the information provided by applicant families and to keep parent information confidential. Learn how to apply for a tuition assistance grant here.
    For more information on tuition assistance or the application process, please contact Tuition Administrator Joanne Farmer at 425-295-3025 or

The EC Guarantee

Eastside Catholic offers families the confidence of the EC Guarantee. As long as a student remains in good standing, merit awards granted will remain the same for the duration of a student's middle school or high school enrollment.

Tuition assistance grants awarded to a student may vary from year to year during a student's enrollment. An application to confirm level of need will be required for each year a student is enrolled. In most circumstances, grants will remain at a level reflecting a family's demonstrated need.
