Enrollment at Monsignor McHugh School generally takes place during the months of February and March for the new school year, although new students can be accepted up until the first day of school.

4. Transportation forms from your home school district

Scholarships

Scholarship Foundation Tuition Assistance 
The Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation provides tuition assistance awards available to all schools in the Diocese. This tuition assistance is funded through the the Pennsylvania State Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program1. Corporations are allowed to designate their contributions for specific Scholarship Organizations and Schools and receive significant tax credits.

Applications for tuition assistance from the Scholarship Foundation for the next academic year are typically available in each school beginning in February.  Applicants for tuition assistance are ranked based on financial need. The amount of money for a school varies because donors have the option of designating their contributions for specific schools or allowing them to be used wherever the need is greatest. Therefore, enlisting the support of our Monroe County business community is crucial in provisioning more funds for Monsignor McHugh School and ultimately giving more families the option to choose Monsignor McHugh.

HB 996, the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)
