Financial Aid Assessment

Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of a St. Martin of Tours Academy education, you are encouraged to apply.

FACTS provides a framework through which a household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from FACTS are used by the St. Martin of Tours Academy finance committee in accordance with its policies to determine the award amount. Final awards notices will be mailed in April by the committee.

Application Information

Applications for tuition assistance need to be completed online.  There is a $35 processing fee.

Applications are processed according to need from January 22, 2021 to March 25, 2021.
