Financial Aid at Saint John's

Through the generosity of Saint John's alumni, parents, and friends, a financial aid program has been established to assist families of moderate and low income. Should you perceive that due to your family's financial situation you would be unable to afford a Saint John's education, we encourage you to apply for financial aid.

We have been successful in meeting the needs of those families seeking assistance, and do not want finances to serve as a deterrent to your son's ability to obtain a Saint John's education. Awards are based solely on a family's assessed financial need in conjunction with the annual funds available through the Financial Aid Program at Saint John’s High School.


Applying for Financial Aid

Applications are available for the 2020-2021 school year beginning November 1, 2019, and we ask families to submit applications by the applicable deadlines below.  The Financial Aid Committee will consider applications submitted after the appropriate due dates, but as funds are limited, it is advised that you apply as soon as possible.  Award notifications for new students will be included in the Admissions Decision Packet.    For our returning students, notifications regarding financial aid awards will be emailed directly from FACTS.  

Divorced/Separated Parents: Each parent is expected to file a financial aid application and submit tax information to FACTS. If the non-custodial parent does not comply with the financial aid process, the application for financial aid may not be processed. The custodial parent may have to supply the financial aid office with documentation of the long-term non-involvement of the non-custodial parent. In the case of remarriage, the assets of the stepparent are also considered, as are the obligations of that stepparent to his or her own natural child(ren). If the child does not reside with the parents, the parents are still expected to participate in the financial aid process. Otherwise, the legal guardians of the child are expected to participate in the financial aid process. Documentation of guardianship should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office.

Financial Aid FAQs

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: How do I apply for financial aid?

    Saint John’s uses the services of an outside agency, FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, to calculate financial need and provide the school with a computational analysis of a family’s financial resources available for education. To apply, you must complete the FACTS online application.
  • Q: What happens after I have completed the financial aid application?

    The FACTS computation process is completed approximately two weeks following submission, at which time the analysis report is forwarded to the Saint John’s Financial Aid Committee. Upon receipt of the FACTS report, the Financial Aid Committee will make decisions on award/work study allocations and each family will be notified by postal mail or email.  For incoming students, the financial aid notification will be enclosed with the Admissions Acceptance Packet.  For returning students, applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received, and families will be notified by postal mail or email.
  • Q: Is financial aid automatically renewed each year?

    No. Because family circumstances may change from year to year, Saint John’s asks that each family requesting financial aid reapply each year. Should your need increase or decrease significantly, Saint John’s is committed to meeting that need appropriately. To be eligible for financial aid and to retain assistance, students must be performing well academically, and be in good standing regarding discipline.
  • Q: What is the deadline for applications for the 2020-2021 academic year?

    Financial aid awards are made in proportion to our assets so it is in each family’s best interest to apply as soon as possible. Applications are available through FACTS beginning November 1, 2019. Please understand that only those families who have completed an application and provided supporting documentation will be considered eligible for financial aid. 

    New incoming high school families application deadline is December 15, 2019.

    New incoming middle school families application deadline is January 15, 2020.

    We ask that our returning families apply by March 1, 2020.  Our Financial Aid Committee will continue to review applications received after March 1, 2020, for the 2020-2021 academic year, but as funds are limited, it is in your best interest to apply on or before the deadline.
  • Q: If an award is granted, how will it be applied to my son's FACTS tuition account?

    If an award is granted, upon receipt of all supporting tax documents, the Financial Aid Committee will notify the Business Office to adjust the family’s FACTS contractual agreement.
  • Q: My son is required to complete a work study assignment as part of his award. What does this mean?

    Work study assignments are based on the dollar amount of financial aid awarded. The required work study hours vary from 40 to 70 hours per academic school year. A student’s academic schedule and extracurricular activities are considered when assigning students to work study positions. Examples of work study assignments include: student receptionist, cafeteria helper, and school office assistant.
