SAN ANTONIO -- The Department of Catholic Schools and Hope for the Future recently rolled out a new initiative to help fill remaining seats at area Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. The program, dubbed the Superintendent’s Transfer Grant, provides a tuition grant of up to $3,000 to families whose children transfer from a public, charter, private, or home school and into a Catholic school. Currently, there are 21 schools, including Sacred Heart School in Floresville, participating in this pilot program. The Superintendent’s Transfer Grant is limited to 10 transfers per school and the goal is to increase enrollment within classrooms that are not yet full.

The grant is available to incoming first- through seventh-grade and ninth- through 11th-grade students at a participating Catholic school and transferring from a qualifying school. A total of $1,500 over two years is available to elementary and middle school students.

Parents are still responsible for registration and application fees, and are encouraged to check with a participating school to ensure space is available. Interested families can find a list of participating schools at
