The Balot Family Scholarships, which total $2M, provide tuition assistance for 50 students who apply and are accepted to attend John Paul II Catholic High School for the 9th or 10th grade in the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 school year. To be eligible, students must first successfully be admitted to JPII and have demonstrated financial need as determined by the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.

The Balot Family Scholarship was established to provide rising 9th and 10th grade students access to a college preparatory Catholic education at John Paul II Catholic High School. The NC Opportunity Scholarship is a wonderful help for students seeking a private education, but it would not be enough to cover the cost of an education at JPII. Our scholarship hopes to reach out to all students who want to attend JPII.

We believe all students who exhibit hard work and a strong will to succeed, regardless of faith, background, or financial need, would benefit from a private education at JPII. To be eligible for the scholarship, students will be in the 9th or 10th grade in the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 school year.

The Balot Family Scholarship covers the registration and academic materials fees ($600) and $6,600 of the $7,800 annual tuition for all 4 years (or 3 years for 10th graders). The annual value of the scholarship is $7,200 and the student’s family is responsible for $100/month ($1,200 total) each school year.
