Yes, there is! During the 2018-2019 school year, we awarded over $610,000 in scholarships and grants to our high school students. In fact, about 85% of our high school students received some type of scholarship, grant, or financial aid for an average award of about $3,200. We are fortunate to have generous donors who allow us to provide financial aid for those in need.
Yes. If you are applying for financial grants, you must also complete the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FHMB. The application will be available beginning November 1st. There is a $35 fee to apply, paid directly to FACTS. You must also mail, upload, or fax your 2017 or 2018 tax return and 2018 W-2 forms to FACTS in order for your application to be complete. For early verification, the 2017 completed tax return with all schedules and the 2018 W2’s must be uploaded. Please note it takes approximately two weeks for FACTS to process your tax documentation and the school cannot process a financial aid award until the tax documentation is received. We encourage all families to start the process as close to November 1st as possible.
FACTS calculates the family’s estimated need and the school works to provide a financial aid package that will be realistic for the family. For those who qualify, financial aid awarded during the first round will range from $250 to $2,500.
Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School strives to make Catholic education affordable for all those who seek it. Families with financial hardships that do not receive adequate aid through the regular financial aid process may also apply for the Fr. John Stites Scholarship. The Stites Scholarship is a partnership between the family and the school that requires the student to commit to their academic performance and maintain a 2.5 G.P.A. to be eligible. It is vital that the recipients of these scholarships are able to demonstrate a commitment to their faith, a commitment to the mission of Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School and embrace Christ’s invitation to be stewards.
The Fr. John Stites Scholarship requires families to meet with the Finance Department to discuss their personal situation to outline the basis for the additional request. The additional request for financial aid is then taken to a committee of the board of directors who evaluate and approve any additional grants. All families must complete the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FHMB before they are considered for the grant.
FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment service does factor in the household size and the family’s expenses when determining the calculation of need, so families with higher incomes do often qualify depending on their circumstances. If a family does not qualify for financial aid during the first round, we invite the family to complete the Fr. Stites Scholarship and meet with the Vice President of Finance to discuss their personal situation.
We also have other assistance available that does not require financial need. For high school students, some of these include:
- Presidential Scholarship up to $5,000 per year (renewable for three years with a minimum G.P.A of 3.5) for those incoming freshmen who demonstrate superior academic excellence.
- St. Kateri Deanery Parishioner Grant of $300. Pastor recommendation is required.
- Multiple Student Grant of 10% for a families’ second child, 20% discount for a families’ third child and a 30% discount for any additional children in the school.
- Stewardship Grant of $500 for Catholic students who are altar servers, members of a youth ministry program, or involved in other specified parish activities. Pastor recommendation is required.
- Legacy Grant of $1,000 for children of alumni. (High School Only)
- Cardinal Scholarship of $1,000 for current Cardinal Stritch eighth graders who continue on to Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School.
Yes, we offer tuition credits through the SCRIP program and the Kroger Community Rewards program. You can even start participating in these now to help for next year’s tuition!
Many parishes also award scholarships to qualified applicants. Please contact your parish directly for more information.
We operate on a prepaid tuition system meaning that tuition must be paid by June 30th, 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year. If you prepay tuition and your student does not attend the school for some reason, your tuition is fully refundable before the start of the school year. Fees are non-refundable.
Families can divide their tuition balance into monthly payments over 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 months. All seniors must be paid in full by April of the year they are graduating, so only 8, 9 and 10 monthly payments are offered. If you need to make monthly payments, you will need to sign up by June 30th, 2019 for the FACTS payment plan using the FACTS link on our website. There is up to a $150 finance charge automatically added to the account if tuition is not paid in full by June 30th, 2019
