Overview of Financial Aid

 Saint Agnes School provides over $1,000,000 in Financial Aid each year.  Financial Aid is distributed generally in two methods: (1) tuition assistance (grants) and (2) scholarships.  All tuition assistance is ‘need-based,’ where scholarships are both ‘need-based’ and ‘merit-based.’

 Saint Agnes utilizes Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) in order to determined financial need of all families. In order to apply for financial aid, please visit www.mytads.com and complete the appropriate application; additional documentation will also need to be submitted.

Questions may be directed to Patrick Menke, Director of Business Affairs and Financial Aid at 651.925.8801 or pmenke@saintagnesschool.org.

 

Saint Agnes School’s Philosophy of Financial Aid

As a Catholic institution, we wish to provide an opportunity to attend Saint Agnes for every qualified student. We are committed to making Catholic education affordable for as many families as we can responsibly serve.

At Saint Agnes School, the responsibility for funding a student’s educational expenses lies with the parents and the student.  For those who cannot pay the full cost, Saint Agnes School makes every effort to provide additional assistance through its Financial Aid Program.

 Saint Agnes has a limited amount of assistance available for families.  For this reason, a Financial Aid Committee makes difficult decisions in how to best ‘invest’ the available aid for the common good of the school.  Though financial need is a critical factor in distributing aid, it does not guarantee financial assistance.  As applicable, the Committee will also consider the real and potential effort, performance, behavior and overall positive contribution of the student in determining financial aid.

Saint Agnes School does not fully fund any student’s tuition.  Each family will need to contribute a portion of the cost of educating a student.  Particular scholarships may have specific criteria established by the benefactors.  There are no athletic scholarships.

A Saint Agnes School education is an investment in the future of each student – an investment through the sacrifices of each family, an investment by the school, and an investment that will hopefully pay dividends in college, life, and beyond.

Special Circumstances Application

If you are a family receiving financial aid and have additional needs or circumstances beyond what your agreement reflects, please complete and submit a Special Circumstance Form and return it to the Business Affairs office.  The Special Circumstance Application should include relevant information regarding your extenuating circumstances, and the requested amount of additional assistance you are seeking.  Though resources are limited, Saint Agnes makes every effort to make our educational program affordable for all families.
