Financial Aid

Saint Francis seeks to make its education available to every eligible student who would benefit from a Catholic, Holy Cross education, no matter his/her financial status. Aid is granted on the basis of financial need with the amount of the award dependent upon the resources available. Current Saint Francis families have priority for the financial awards, but all entering students who apply for aid will be considered. Applying for financial aid has no bearing on the admission process.

Work Grant and Financial Aid

Financial aid is granted solely on the basis of financial need and includes a work grant component that requires students to give tuition service hours back to the school. Work/Service hours will be scheduled to allow students to fully participate in normal school and extracurricular activities. Incoming freshmen are exempt from service/work hours for their freshman year in the financial aid program.

Maintaining the Financial Aid Award

All students enrolled in the financial aid program are required to perform their tuition service hours responsibly and cooperatively, and maintain good grades and good citizenship. Recipients of the aid are required to achieve at least a 2.0 GPA in all of their classes. Hours must be completed on schedule to receive tuition credit.

Application Process

Each year, a PSAS Financial aid application is to be submitted by all families requesting consideration for financial aid. The deadline for submission for the 2014-2015 year is February 4, 2015 for all requesting consideration. Late and or incomplete applications may result in less or no financial aid from being awarded.

 

Saint Francis High School, sponsored by the Brothers of Holy Cross, admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin. The school does not discriminate based on disability if the student is otherwise qualified and can, with reasonable accommodations, meet the graduation requirements of the school.
