Affording Saint Francis
Saint Francis recognizes that a Catholic school education is a significant financial commitment. We know that the financial piece is an important part of the decision making process for families when choosing a Saint Francis education. We will work with families to make a Saint Francis education accessible and affordable for all. Currently $4 million is budgeted for need-based grants annually.
We are Here to Support You
"Saint Francis is committed to providing tuition assistance in order to bridge the financial gap for students who desire a Holy Cross education. Tuition assistance goes beyond the application process, and we will be available to support students and their families throughout their 4 year journey, to help ensure a rich educational experience."
A Saint Francis education is an investment in your child’s future. Our tuition assistance program is designed to help families bridge the gap between their own financial resources and the cost of a Saint Francis education. Tuition assistance at Saint Francis is need-based. Saint Francis contracts with FACTS, a third party organization that provides an independent assessment of each tuition assistance application.
