Scholarships and Financial Aid
This year, Salesianum provided over $1 million in financial aid to families of attending students.
As part of our commitment to recruiting a truly diverse student body, we strive to making our experience affordable to all qualified students through a combination of merit scholarships and need-based financial aid. Salesianum does not offer scholarships or financial aid based upon a student's athletic ability.
Over $325,000 was awarded for academic scholarships in the 2012–2013 school year. Academic scholarships are awarded to eighth grade students based on their performance on the entrance exam. Applicants who have the highest national percentile composite score at the December testing are eligible for a scholarship. These awards are renewable each year. Each student awarded an academic scholarship must maintain a quarterly GPA of at least 3.00 and not be placed on disciplinary probation for any reason.
Financial Aid is based solely on demonstrated need. Any family who feels unable to afford the full cost of tuition is encouraged to apply for financial aid. Typically, 80% of the students who apply for financial aid receive it. Over $1 million was granted in financial aid for the 2012–2013 school year.
Financial aid applications are processed via School and Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. SSS generates an estimated amount each family can contribute to educational expenses based on the financial information provided. This ensures fair and objective financial aid decisions.
