Financial Aid

Financial Aid falls under two categories: merit (based on a student's academic performance) and need (based on the student's family's financial situation). Eligible students may receive both merit- and need-based assistance.

Merit-based Assistance (Applicants to grade 9 only)
Please view the Scholarship page for information about merit awards.

Need-based Assistance (also called Financial Aid - applicable for all grades)

Need-based applications must be filed online through the Smart Tuition Aid website at the link below. When prompted for the school code, please enter our code: 90086.


You will be guided through the online process by prompts. There will be an application fee of $25.

Please complete the online secure-site application between Nov. 1, 2016 and Jan. 23, 2017 to maximize your chances for financial aid.

Please note that the application deadline for need-based aid is January 23 for the class of 2021; applying early will allow us the opportunity to provide a decision regarding aid prior to the March registration deadline.

Transfer students should apply for aid no later than May 15.
