Financial Assistance through Mother McAuley
The Lifetime Advantage of a Mother McAuley education is an investment in your daughter’s future. We understand that the expense of a Catholic high school education is a challenge for many families. Mother McAuley is committed to providing tuition assistance to all qualifying families. This assistance may come in the form of McAuley financial aid grants, McAuley scholarships, and/or funds from our external scholarship partner organizations.
Currently, 61% of our students receive some form of tuition assistance. These funds come from the Mother McAuley High School Endowment Fund, the fund-raising efforts of our Mothers and Fathers Clubs, contributions to our Annual Fund, the generous donations of our many benefactors, and our external scholarship partners.
Who should apply for financial aid?
We encourage ALL families to complete the FAST financial aid application. 88% of the applicants who completed the FAST application for the 2016-2017 school year received a financial aid award. The submission a FAST financial aid application also qualifies your daughter to apply for many of the scholarship opportunities that we offer to currently enrolled students at McAuley.
In addition to income, FAST also considers your household size, the number of dependents enrolled in tuition charging schools, and circumstances that are particular to your family’s situation. The FAST application allows families to submit information about any extenuating family circumstances that should be considered in evaluating their application.
Please note that currently enrolled students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.5 in order to receive tuition assistance.
Mother McAuley also offers a select number of scholarships exclusively for incoming freshmen. Descriptions of these scholarships can be found by by clicking on the link below.
