Financial assistance is based on the parents' financial need as determined by FACTS and reviewed by a financial aid committee. Deliberations of this committee are confidential, and all decisions by this committee are final and binding. Regrettably, St. Bernard of Clairvaux School is not able to meet the financial aid needs of all students who apply.
All decisions are made on a year-by-year basis. There can be no assurance that a student receiving financial assistance in one year will be offered financial assistance at a comparable level, in any subsequent year.
Financial assistance notification/denial letters are emailed only to financial aid applicants whose forms were completed by the deadline, April 1, 2019. Forms received subsequent to the deadline, or incomplete applications will be reviewed if aid becomes available; late/incomplete, and second round applicants will only be notified if they are granted aid. Financial assistance must be applied for EACH school year.
The FACTS financial aid application for the 2019-2020 school year is now open. We encourage all of our families (and potential families) to apply. In order to be considered for financial aid, below is a list of the required documents for St. Bernard of Clairvaux School:
To be considered for St. Bernard of Clairvaux or the Catholic Diocese financial aid, applications must be completed with FACTS by April 1, 2019. This means your documents must be uploaded by this date in order for FACTS to have enough time to verify your documents and change your application status to complete. The Financial Aid Committee will not review incomplete applications. We welcome families to start their application early so when the April due date comes around all you have to do is upload your 2018 W-2's to complete your application.
Please direct any questions or concerns the school office.
