At Rosary Academy, we are committed to supporting all families choosing to invest in their daughter’s future and helping them grow into faith-filled leaders who will transform the world. We strive to keep the tuition affordable by offering a combination of need-based tuition assistance and scholarships to make it work for all families.
Awards may vary based on changes in available funds, families’ finances, and overall requests for tuition assistance. Tuition assistance is not guaranteed nor renewed automatically. Families are required to reapply each year through FACTS Grant & Aid. Award decisions are communicated to those applicants who submit a completed application with all required supporting documents and qualify for tuition assistance on a rolling, first come, first served basis until all available funds have been awarded.
Tuition Assistance Applications for the 2024-25 school year are now open!
Tuition assistance is based on financial need. Rosary Academy aims to be affordable and fair to all who apply, regardless of race, religion, or other demographic background. However, due to the increased demand but limited funding, all award decisions are made based on relative need.
All Tuition assistance recipients must adhere to the following requirements:
Student must maintain a 2.5 GPA throughout the school year in which Tuition assistance is received.
Student must be in good disciplinary standing and up-to-date on community service hour requirements for the year.
Families receiving tuition assistance are required to set-up a payment plan in FACTS and stay current on their monthly tuition/fee payments to maintain their award throughout the year in which tuition assistance is received.
Families receiving tuition assistance are required to volunteer at main Rosary fundraiser events such as Cracked Crab or Red Wine & Gold.
The full amount of tuition assistance is pro-rated over the entire academic school year in which aid is received.
Every family must keep their tuition award confidential; awards may be revoked if shared or in case the above guidelines are not kept. As we hold all personal and financial information in the strictest confidence, we expect every family to do the same.
Please understand that tuition assistance is processed through FACTS, and it should not be confused with the set-up of a tuition & fees payment plan in FACTS, which is required annually in the admission and re-enrollment process.
All tuition assistance applications must be completed through FACTS Grant & Aid, which is the online service provider that processes tuition assistance applications for most private schools.
FACTS Grant & Aid charges an application fee of $40 per family, which families pay online upon submission of their applications.

Awards letters are communicated through FACTS, and families are required to keep their award confidential. Awards will be revoked if shared.
With the understanding that financial situations could change, families who have received an initial award letter are allowed to appeal their tuition assistance award decision.
