In recognition of the spirit of our mission, Loretto Academy invites families who cannot afford the full cost of tuition to apply for tuition assistance. This assistance is awarded on the basis of need to qualified students who are returning or have been admitted as new students. Loretto Academy uses an independent company to evaluate the family’s financial situation and recommend the level of assistance Loretto Academy should offer.
Students receiving tuition assistance must maintain passing grades each semester and be good examples of Christian behavior both in and out of school. Students’ grades, attendance, behavior, and cooperation will also be evaluated. Students who disregard school rules or who are placed in suspension for any reason will no longer be eligible for tuition assistance during that school year. Students in middle and high school receiving any tuition assistance will be assigned to work study to be performed before or after school hours daily. Failure to do this assignment responsibly will result in loss of tuition assistance. Student recipients of named scholarships will be asked to provide updates and thank you notes to donors.
Tuition assistance is available for families who need it. The Financial Aid Committee will evaluate your family’s financial situation and recommend the level of assistance Loretto Academy is able to offer. You must be registered to be considered for financial aid. Applications for financial assistance must be done on line at www.factstuitionaid.com. FACTS will charge $30 to process the tuition assistance application. Financial assistance will be awarded to a student who has completed the Loretto Academy’s registration process and her work study hours by May 5, 2018 .
It is very important that you complete the application(s) and send FACTS required income tax forms on time. Late applications will be placed on a waiting list for selection as funds become available.
