FACTS Management is pleased to announce that the Florida Province of Catholic Schools has named it the sole provider for tuition management and financial aid assessment for the next three years. Serving more than one million families, FACTS Management assists over 6,600 private and faith-based K–12 schools nationwide by streamlining billing and collection of tuition as well as the process of evaluating financial need.
“Our team here at FACTS Management is excited to accommodate the new Catholic families that will be utilizing our services. We want to help make their educational dreams possible, and this is a great start,” Jim Owens, FACTS Management Executive Vice President and National Sales Manager said. The organization is committed to enhancing financial stability and affordability while creating a smooth tuition management and financial aid workflow for both the families and all Catholic institutions in Florida. With this agreement, FACTS Management will assist thousands of families in the dioceses of Miami, Orlando, Palm Beach, Pensacola/Tallahassee, St. Augustine, St. Petersburg and Venice.
Henry Fortier, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Orlando, felt FACTS Management was the right fit, stating, “FACTS Management has been a great partner to work with at the school and diocesan level. The system-wide transition was seamless with excellent customer service. I would describe our years-long partnership with the following three characteristics: integrity, customer service and quality.”
Florida Catholic schools working with FACTS Management now have access to the recently renovated and updated Institution Dashboard from FACTS for real time financial information and tuition and fee billing positions for all families on the system. Schools can generate reports that list cash remitted data, delinquencies, incidental billing amounts, cash projected information and payment plan statuses.
Florida families being served by FACTS Management are provided easy payment plan and financial aid sign up along with a parent portal to manage their financial obligations with great flexibility. Families can log in to a password protected site to check the status of their account, pay tuition and fees online, update demographic information, switch payment methods, and more.
Other benefits of working with FACTS Management include: single sign-on to all systems and the confidence of knowing FACTS adheres to the most stringent security standards for payment processing (e.g., SSAE 16 audited, PCI DSS Level 1 validation, and Red Flags ready).
Recognizing the benefit of streamlining all schools through one servicer, Gary Gelo, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Palm Springs, expressed, “We’re pleased to make this statewide commitment. As a premier partner with Catholic schools across the country, we know FACTS will provide our school parents with outstanding service as they assist our schools on this important business function.”
