PSAS takes into account things like household income, number in the family, and assets. The information that PSAS requires is simple and straight forward. We can help you complete the PSAS application. A copy of the application can be obtained by contacting the school office at 412-466-6238.

The Angel Fund is also available for members of St. Agnes Parish.

Once you have completed the necessary financial assistance application and a third party provider has analyzed this information, the diocesan school office will inform you of any award you may be eligible to receive.
