We recognize that choosing an independent private school is a major financial decision for families. Nazareth Academy High School seeks students from all socioeconomic backgrounds and it is our philosophy to keep the school within reach of many girls. Having talented students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds strengthens Nazareth in every way.
Nazareth Academy High School believes in a personalized financial aid process and remains committed to individualized review. In an effort to collect specific documentation that could potentially lead to additional resources for a family in the future, we will utilize an outside agency as a component of our award process.
Families wishing to apply for financial aid through Nazareth Academy will need to complete an online application and supply the required documentation. The largest portion of Nazareth’s internal financial aid award occurs at our review in December. Although the application will be available into the new year, the resources deplete from the initial awards. Families are strongly encouraged to participate in the financial aid process for the December deadline. There is a $30 fee charged by FACTS. The applications for the Class of 2023 will open on Monday, September 17, 2018 and close on Friday, November 2, 2018. Financial aid decisions will be distributed with your daughter's Entrance Exam results. To access financial aid application, please click here.
We have included questions in the financial aid application that reflect our personalized approach to this process, such as “number of dependents in elementary/high school and tuitions”. The general application only asks for college and day care. You will also have a section to provide your personal story and details behind the numbers. The students will also be required to answer a short essay question “I chose Naz because…”. For more information on required documentation needed for your financial aid application, please click here.
There are some outside resources for financial aid in the community and available privately. As you are researching these resources, please check that the donor/organization will apply the aid/grant to Nazareth Academy High School. Some donors/organizations have guidelines that restrict which schools are eligible. Families are encouraged to conduct their own research on possible outside grants and contests. Below are a few resources that Nazareth Academy High School is familiar with.
