Financing Your Child’s Education

Prince of Peace Catholic Schools offers a variety of ways to help provide for your child’s school education. First and foremost, we receive over $100,000 of support from a combination of the Prince of Peace Catholic Church, the Yunker Foundation, Friends of Shawe, and Pope John as well as many loyal supporters. This is awarded in the form of tuition assistance for families who have filled out the proper tuition assistance paperwork and are reviewed by the tuition assistance committee.

Programs available include:

  • Need-based tuition assistance
  • Indiana Choice Scholarship Voucher
  • Academic scholarships

It is possible for a student to qualify for all four types of assistance. The need-based tuition assistance and the Indiana Choice Scholarship Voucher program are the two most common forms of tuition assistance at Prince of Peace Catholic Schools.
