Financial Aid Program 2018-2019
St. Lucy’s is owned and operated by the Benedictine sisters and offers a limited amount of need-based financial aid. Every effort is made to extend the financial assistance necessary to allow all qualified students the opportunity to attend St. Lucy’s.
Tuition assistance grants are based on the standards established by FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, the school’s internally established criteria and the family’s expected contribution. Students receiving financial aid must maintain a minimum grade of C or above in each class with no Ds or Fs and an acceptable conduct record. In addition to this, returning families must be current on tuition before receiving a financial aid award. Funding for scholarships and tuition grants comes from St. Lucy’s operating budget and donors.
Need-based financial aid awards do not renew automatically each year. Families receiving financial aid one year must re-apply each year in order to be considered for a new financial aid award.
FACTS Tuition Award Information
St. Lucy’s utilizes FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, one of the nation’s leading scholastic financial aid consulting firms, to determine financial aid eligibility and distribution amounts for all need-based financial aid awards. All applications are treated in confidence. Please note that FACTS forms must be returned to FACTS directly. Incomplete applications, or those submitted after the deadline, may jeopardize the student’s opportunity to receive financial aid.
Families applying for financial aid that have an incoming freshman daughter need to complete the FACTS Application and must submit tax documentation for 2016.
Note: If an incoming freshman has an older sibling(s) at St. Lucy’s, families must complete the FACTS Application by the February 1, 2018 deadline and can include the older sibling(s) on that form.
If a family already has a daughter(s) at St. Lucy’s, they need to complete the FACTS Application by March 1, 2018 and must submit tax documentation for 2017.
Only one application per family is required.
FACTS will forward your assessment to St. Lucy’s. The financial aid committee at St. Lucy’s will review this information and make the final determination. Families will then be notified of the committee’s decision.
We are unable to offer 100% tuition assistance. All recipients will be required to pay at least 75% of the tuition each year and most recipients will be required to pay more than this 75%. Once the financial aid funds have been exhausted, financial aid is no longer available.

Merit-Based Scholarships for Incoming Freshmen

The Benedictine Scholarship will generously cover the full amount of St. Lucy’s tuition all four years if the student maintains at least a 3.5 GPA, acceptable conduct and involvement in the school community.
The criteria for the scholarship is as follows:
Those who score at the 99% percentile on the HSPT will receive the full amount of tuition.
Regent Scholarships are achievement awards available to incoming freshmen for their first year
at St. Lucy’s. These are not renewable.

Those who score within the 95%-98% percentile on the HSPT will receive $2,000.
