(FACTS Grant and Aid)
Bishop Alemany offers tuition assistance directly, based on financial need to current and incoming families. Alemany’s Tuition Assistance program has a two-fold purpose: to provide students an opportunity for a Catholic education which might otherwise be inaccessible for them and to provide the school with a well-qualified student body reflecting economic diversity. The Bishop Alemany Tuition Assistance Committee reviews the initial application and the FACTS Grant & Aid calculation. Final aid decisions are always based on the Committee’s assessment of an applicant’s needs and the budgeted funds available. Unfortunately, there is always a greater demand for aid than there are resources. Information reviewed by the Tuition Assistance Committee and discussions with committee meetings are strictly confidential and personal information is restricted to committee members only.
Goals of the Tuition Assistance Program (FACTS) at Bishop Alemany High School:
-To bring to Bishop Alemany High School Catholic students who could not otherwise attend for financial reasons, who will strengthen the student body, and who are seen as HIGH PRIORITIES IN MEETING the School’s enrollment goals.
-To enhance the mission statement of the school, which states as a Catholic High School, Bishop Alemany is a community enriched by faith that develops intellectually prepared men and women who are committed to promoting a just and peaceful world as conscientious and morally courageous leaders in service to others. We also strive to develop a student body of academic excellence, confidence, diversity, high ethical values, and leadership.
-To support continuing students by providing temporary emergency tuition aid (when funds are available) to current Bishop Alemany High School families who experience unexpected financial reversals in the course of a particular academic year.
ONLINE APPLICATION PROCESS ONLY
General application period for all students begins November 1, 2017. Families must reapply for tuition assistance every year in order to evaluate financial need.
The school’s TUITION ASSISTANCE is per student based on family financial need in addition to student academics (maintaining a minimum of 2.0 GPA), conduct and leadership. The administration determines the maximum award based on the number of applicants and funds available, with award decisions available beginning in March, 2018. The applications are managed through FACTS Grant and Aid.
