Financial Aid FAQs

We want to be a support to you and make sure that you understand every option available in the process of financing your child’s tuition. If answers to your questions are not located below, please contact us. We are here to help.

Q: Who qualifies for financial assistance & how much assistance can I expect?

A: Financial assistance is based upon your family’s income, number of dependents and any extenuating circumstances; therefore, no specific dollar amount automatically qualifies your family. Financial assistance awards vary depending on your family’s financial situation.

Q: When will I be notified of how much assistance I have been granted?

A: Once you have completed the necessary financial assistance application and it has been reviewed, the school office will inform you of any award you may be eligible to receive. This notification occurs soon after the school has the information necessary to determine an award.

Q: Are the names of financial assistance recipients kept confidential?

A: Yes. Only school office personnel are made aware of scholarships granted, for record-keeping purposes. CEF members are NOT informed of financial assistance decisions.

Q: What if I do not qualify for financial assistance and decide not to enroll — do I receive the registration fee back?

A: No. The registration fee is nonrefundable.

Q: What if my financial situation changes during the school year?

A: In some cases a family’s financial situation changes during the school year. In these cases, the family is encouraged to speak with the principal.
