SCHOLARSHIPS/ FINANCIAL AID

Since 1989, when the first scholarship was endowed, until present, the children of SAS have benefited through the generosity of the endowers.  Those students who otherwise might not have been able to attend a Catholic school, have been and are part of the St. Aloysius family.  This school has been blessed in many ways, and one of the most special is the availability of scholarships made possible by those that believe in Catholic education and St. Aloysius School.  

This year, SAS has contracted with The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Services to securely collect families’ financial data and review it in an accurate and equitable way. There is an online application for families to apply and upload tax documents and a one-time non-refundable application fee of $35.00 per household to apply. The same application can be applied to multiple schools provided they use FACTS. For example, SJA & CHS both use FACTS.

 

Scholarships/Financial Aid is awarded annually. All submitted information remains confidential. A scholarship selection committee will meet to determine recipients. To be considered, a student must be a currently enrolled PreK through the seventh grade student for the 2021-2022 school year.
 

Need is always the prime determinant for selection. Other criteria considered in the selection are good character, satisfactory achievement, and activities. Four scholarships are designated for minority students. 

 

The school currently has 54 scholarships that award the following amounts:

39 scholarships award $500.00

4 scholarships award $1,000.00

5 scholarships award $1,500.00

4 scholarships award $2,000.00

2 scholarship award $3,000.00

1 scholarship awards full tuition

 

The application deadline is Monday, February 14, 2022. All documents must be uploaded and your application completed by this deadline to be considered for a scholarship. Notifications will be sent out to applicants in March.
 

The link to apply can be found here and can also be found on the Parents’ tab and Important Links beginning
Monday, Monday, January 24, 2022. If you have questions or if paying the application fee is a financial hardship, please contact Mary Dawson in the Development office at mdawson@aloysius.org.

If you are interested in contributing to one of our scholarships or scholarship funds, gifts may be remitted to the school:
