Financial Aid



Families interested in Ss. Peter and Paul School may be eligible to receive tuition assistance from the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund.  The BISON Fund is a privately funded tuition assistance program for economically eligible families with children entering grades K-8.


**NEW for 2018-19**
The BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund is pleased to introduce a new 15% funding bracket that they are rolling out for the 2018-2019 school year. This will allow some families that previously didn’t qualify for funding now to qualify for a 15% scholarship. It will also allow BISON to retain families if their income exceeds the 25% bracket. 

More information including how to apply, please visit our website.

With a maximum award of $2,100, this is a great opportunity for families

who desire a private education for their children but may be unable to afford it.  Contact the school at 716-632-6146 or the BISON Fund at 716.854.0869 if you have any questions.
