Financial Aid Application Process

Both the Archdiocese of St. Louis Catholic Education Office and St. Francis Borgia Regional High School use the FACTS Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment system to calculate the needs of those families applying for tuition assistance. Thus, only one application is needed to apply for tuition assistance through grants and scholarships available through either the Archdiocese or Borgia.

Families must submit an application to be considered for tuition assistance. Information and documentation required includes:

  1. An application completed online at FACTS Grant & Aid.
  2. Payment of the $30 application fee made payable to: “FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment”. Please do not send cash.
  3. Copies of your prior year Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
  4. Copies of your prior year W-2 forms for both you and your spouse.
  5. Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.

Failure to submit all of the required information by the deadline date may result in your family not receiving financial aid or limit the amount given due to incomplete information.

Only one application per child is accepted. In a divorce situation, the application from the custodial parent will be accepted.

This application must be completed annually by March 15 to be considered for the Archdiocesan Grants (the Archdiocesan Catholic Family Tuition Assistance Endowment and the Parish Employees Endowment Fund).

This application must be completed annually by May 15 to be considered for financial aid available through Borgia which includes dispersal of funds available from auction proceeds, School Sisters of Notre Dame scholarships, Need-Based Scholarships, and other sources of funding for tuition assistance. (Note that some of the need-based scholarships are funded by individual donors and have additional specific criteria.)
