Merit Awards & Scholarships

In addition to need-based financial aid, we are proud to offer merit-based awards and scholarships. These include awards recognizing students for Catholic discipleship, academic achievement, and excellence in the fine arts.

If you think your child may be eligible for an award, we encourage you to nominate him or her, or you can request a nomination from your student's principal, teacher, or priest.

The majority of our merit awards are applied to a student's tuition freshman year. Scholarship priority is given to families who complete the admissions process prior to Dec. 31st of their child's 8th grade year.
