For the 2020-2021 school year the Academy will implement FACTS Student Information System (FACTS SIS). This includes FACTS Family Portal – a private and secure parents’ portal that will allow parents to stay up-to-date with academic information specific to their children. In addition to FACTS Payment Plans/Financial Aid, which you may have already used in the past to manage your tuition payments.
FACTS Payment Plans & Financial Aid
FACTS Payment Plans
One of our goals this year at Our Lady of Sorrows Academy is to improve the business side of our school. By taking advantage of the security and convenience of payment processing and information technology offered by FACTS, we remain committed to this goal. You will realize these benefits by using FACTS for your tuition payment plan:
- Payment Dates: You may choose payment intervals and payment depending on your preferences. Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account.
- Convenience & Security: Along with multiple payment plan options, your payments are processed securely through bank to bank transaction.
- Consumer Account: You may check your personal account or make payments online from the convenience of your home or office anytime.
If you have followed the steps under Setup of FACTS Family Portal and Academy Enrollment on FACTS Family Portal towards the top of this page, then you will have been prompted to also set up your tuition payment plan. Once your information is received and processed by FACTS, you will receive a FACTS Confirmation Notice. This notice will confirm your payment plan information. Please check this information for accuracy, and contact the school or FACTS with any discrepancies. You can always access your information by visiting factsmgt.com, clicking Parent Login at the top right hand corner and selecting Payment Plans/Financial Aid. Enter OLS-AZ into the District Code field.
FACTS Financial Aid
One of the universal challenges in education is achieving a balance between our educational mission and financial stability. With FACTS, the school maintains decision-making control. As always, we will continue to work with families should special circumstances or hardship cases arise during the school year. FACTS will be conducting the financial need analysis for Our Lady of Sorrows Academy (funds from the District).
Families applying for financial aid on FACTS (funds from the District) are first required to apply to all STOs on our school's list here. The scholarship applications for STOs are completely different and separate. If you would like help with this, please contact the school office. Next, apply online by visiting factsmgt.com, clicking Parent Login at the top right hand corner and selecting Payment Plans/Financial Aid. Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the financial aid application process:
- Copies of your 2019 federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
- Copies of your 2019 W-2 forms for both you and your spouse.
- Copies of supporting documentation for social security income, welfare, child support, food stamps, workers' compensation and TANF.
All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format online. Documentation can also be faxed to 866-315-9264 or mailed to the address below. Please be sure to include the applicant ID on all faxed or mailed correspondence.
