New Family Smart Tuition Registration

Smart Tuition Online Registration (enter St. Simon's School code 11324).  All new families must complete the on-line registration with Smart Tuition.  Families will not be considered enrolled until this on-line registration is completed.  Families have the option for automatic, credit card, or mail in payments.  The choice of payment options is made at the time the online registration with Smart Tuition is completed.

Financial Assistance

St. Simon Catholic Parish, the Diocese of San Jose, and The BASIC Fund have dollars available which are awarded based on demonstrated need. 

The PSAS form is used to assist in determining financial aid awards from both Diocesan and Parish funds.  PSAS does not provide financial aid.  PSAS is Diocesan-approved third-party provider that performs an analysis of a family's respective aid need.  Forms must be completed and submitted within the deadline to be considered for financial aid.

To apply for funds from the Diocese of San Jose or Saint Simon Parish for the upcoming school year:

  • Complete the 2015-2016 PSAS form.   Forms must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2015.  You must download this PDF and save it to your computer before filling it out electronically.  To properly complete the form electronically and ensure the information is recorded correctly, you must open it within Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.  Do not  “view” the PDF and attempt to complete it in your browser.  This will result in an unusable PDF and/or improperly recorded information.  You can also print out a hard copy and complete the form by hand.

  • Mail completed forms, along with your application fee to:
    Private School Aid Service
    P.O. Box 89434
    Cleveland, OH 44101-6434

The Basic Fund is a separate entity that provides need-based scholarships to Catholic school students. All families applying for financial aid are strongly encouraged to apply to the Basic Fund as well as following the PSAS submission process.
