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
aid is granted purely 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 first year in the financial aid program.
Maintaining the Financial Aid Award
All student 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.
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 2012-2013 year is February 6
for all requesting consideration. Late and or incomplete applications may result in less or no financial aid from being awarded.
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.
