What is Financial Aid at St. Philip?
Financial aid is a tuition program that allows families to pay what they can reasonably afford to attend St. Philip. With our financial aid program, each family pays a rate of tuition that fits their unique financial situation. This program is for families with at least one student in kindergarten through 8th grade. Financial aid makes a St. Philip education affordable to many students and families who could not otherwise join our school community.
How Does Financial Aid Work?
Any family (current or new) of a Kindergarten through 8th grade student may apply for financial aid if they feel they may not be able to afford the full tuition rate at St. Philip. The factors considered when determining the tuition amount a family is able to pay include income and the size of the family. The goal is that each family is asked to pay what they can reasonably afford.
Applications are submitted directly to FACTS Management, a third-party agency. FACTS evaluates the application and makes a recommendation to the school’s financial aid Committee. Families are notified of the tuition level for which they qualify from the school’s financial office.
What if I have a financial circumstance not reflected in my Financial Aid application?
If you have a unique or special circumstance (medical bills, caring for an aging parent, etc.) that affects your ability to pay the Financial Aid amount awarded, please reach out to Mrs. Tennis at email@example.com.
What kind of economic situation is typical of a family who qualifies for Financial Aid?
A wide range of families with a variety of circumstances qualify for the program, from those who are able to pay close to full tuition amount to those who are able to pay a smaller percentage of the full tuition amount. Various factors are evaluated, including income, unusual expenses, and the size of the family.
When do I need to complete the Financial Aid Application by?
To ensure enrollment for the 2023/2024 school year, we highly encourage you to complete the process by May 31st, 2023.
Should every new or returning St. Philip family submit an application for Financial Aid?
No. Only families who feel that they may not able to pay the full tuition amount should submit an application.
Do I need to apply to St. Philip to receive confirmation of my Financial Aid application?
Yes, families may apply for Financial Aid after they have applied for re-enrollment or admission to the school
Upon completion of my Financial Aid application, when will I receive confirmation of my Financial Aid application?
Typically, within 2-3 weeks of providing all the required information to our confidential third-party service.
What is the cost to apply for Financial Aid?
Each family pays a $35 application fee to FACTS. This fee is per family and not per student. Families whose income level is under a certain amount will have the fee waived.
Do I need to apply for Financial Aid every year?
Yes. A new application must be submitted every year.
If I do not qualify for the program this year, can I apply again next year?
Yes. A family that does not qualify is welcome to reapply the following year.
Are some families awarded full tuition?
No. Every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. Our commitment to providing Financial Aid means that we are sharing in that investment with you.
Is there a minimum tuition amount required for each family?
Yes, each family will be asked to make a minimum contribution to share in the commitment to high-quality Christ-centered education.
Does Financial Aid factor in multiple students attending St. Philip?
Multiple students are one of the key factors in determining Financial Aid. One of the important questions asked on the confidential Financial Aid application relates to family size and number of students enrolled at St. Philip. The Financial Aid amount is what the family as a whole will be asked to pay. Families paying the full tuition amount will continue to receive the multiple child discounts.
