Financial Aid

In keeping with our commitment to enroll academically qualified students, regardless of their financial circumstances, Holy Child maintains a sound financial aid program. For some families, the full tuition stretches resources beyond the family budget. Through Holy Child's financial aid program, we strive to make a Holy Child education possible for these families.

Financial aid grants are need-based and are renewed annually. We carefully consider each financial aid application and make grants available to families with demonstrated need. Because we often admit more students that require aid than we are able to fund, admitted students do not always receive aid even if they qualify. Applicants who are admitted to the school may be placed on a Financial Aid Wait List. Income, assets, liabilities, and number of children attending tuition schools are some of the factors taken into account in determining need and eligibility for aid. Approximately 30% of Holy Child's student body, grades 5 through 12, receives financial assistance, which this year totaled over $1.5M. For 2020-2021, the average grant is $13,000 with individual grants ranging from 5% to 86% of tuition.

Holy Child offers one named need-based scholarship:

  • The Sister Anna Daly, SHJC ’43 Fund, established in 2012, is an endowed fund and is awarded to a legacy student with a sincere dedication to scholarship and a commitment to community service. All qualified applicants will be considered.

Families with other children at a tuition-charging school are required to submit a financial statement or bill from the other institution by July 1, 2020. All parents (biological, step or adoptive) must complete the required paperwork. In the case of divorced parents, custodial and non-custodial parents are required to complete separate applications online. Other supplemental forms are sometimes required depending on family circumstances. All information provided is kept strictly confidential.

The PFS worksheet and instructions is also available in Spanish at the SSS website.
