Grants and Student Work Program

MARIAN LEADERSHIP GRANT
The cost of private Catholic education is such that the tuition and fees charged do not cover the total cost of educating each student. Marian’s Advancement efforts, including the Marian Fund, Spring Raffle, and parent club fundraisers, are designed to make up the difference between the actual cost of educating each student (approximately $16,510 for 2020-2021) and the tuition charged ($14,110). Therefore, in accordance with Marian’s mission to serve as many families as possible, a Marian Leadership Grant of $2,400 is made available to each student.

TUITION ASSISTANCE GRANTS
Marian High School also offers several other opportunities to assist families with tuition. The primary objective of the Tuition Assistance Grants is to help students from moderate and low-income families to attend Marian. Tuition Assistance Grants are funded by Marian High School.

Fundamental to its mission is Marian's desire to make a Marian education available to as many students as possible and to assist families who find themselves facing economic uncertainty. Families in need of  tuition assistance due to an economic hardship resulting from COVID-19 or otherwise, are encouraged to apply. Tuition assistance applications must be submitted via FACTS/Grant & Aid for consideration by Marian's Tuition Assistance Committee. Students must be accepted and registered in order for tuition assistance applications to be reviewed.
 
Beginning with the 2020-21 school year, Marian’s Board of Directors made a commitment to dramatically increase the amount of tuition assistance available to Marian families. Historically, based upon the need demonstrated in the family’s FACTS/Grant & Aid application, Marian’s tuition assistance program provided awards ranging from $500 to $4,500. Beginning July 2020, tuition assistance awards now range from $500 to $10,000,  which doubles the amount of assistance previously offered.

Families with registered students are able to apply for Tuition Assistance Grants which are determined by the Tuition Assistance Committee. Criteria for these awards are available by clicking here.

Applications are to be completed by mid-March for the upcoming school year.  Click on FACTS G/A FAQs for detailed information regarding applying for aid using FACTS. To initiate an application visit FACTS and select Start Application.
