Financial Aid


Saint Gertrude High School maintains a financial aid program designed to assist families that demonstrate financial need. The school strives to provide assistance to those families needing help to bridge the gap between family resources and the cost of tuition. Currently, over 37 percent of our students are receiving need-based assistance. While the two processes work along the same timeline, financial aid decisions are made separately from the admissions process and have no impact on your daughter’s eligibility for admission.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

All families interested in applying for financial assistance must submit an application online through FACTS Grant & Aid. Additional information concerning the FACTS application process and contact information can be found here. All financial aid information is held in the strictest confidence and is only reviewed by members of the Financial Aid Committee directly involved in determining awards.

Important Dates

FACTS Grant & Aid is currently accepting financial aid applications for the 2017-18 school. Families are required to reapply for financial aid each year, however, every attempt is made to provide ongoing assistance to returning students that demonstrate continued need.

Freshman and transfer applicants are asked to complete their FACTS application, including submission of the required tax documents, no later than February 10, in order to receive your financial aid award letter with your admission decision. Families re-applying for continued assistance should complete your application by February 24 in order to receive your financial aid award letter with your 2017-18 re-enrollment materials.
