Holy Child School at Rosemont is a joyful, inclusive community that welcomes children of differing backgrounds. Through our financial aid policies and practices, we strive to enroll mission-appropriate students regardless of their family’s ability to afford a Holy Child education. The purpose of this is two-fold: to provide students an opportunity for an education which might otherwise be inaccessible and to provide the School with a well-qualified student body reflecting economic diversity.
For the 2016-17 school year, Holy Child has awarded more than $850,000 in need-based aid to approximately 20% of the school population. While students in PreKindergarten through 8th grade are eligible for financial assistance, in general, a family with children in grades PreK-4 must be able to pay 30-50% of the tuition; more funds are available in middle school (grades 5-8). The School funds Financial Aid from its endowment, operating revenue and Pennsylvania’s EITC/OSTC program.
The School adheres to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for the awarding of Financial Aid, and uses the services of a third party, School & Student Services (SSS) by NAIS, to help determine a family’s eligibility for Aid.
When calculating a family’s ability to pay, we take into account choices that reflect budgetary priorities. Holy Child School at Rosemont’s Financial Aid program operates under the premise that families bear the primary responsibility for financing education to the extent that they are able; thus, we expect families to make choices that indicate that a Holy Child education is considered a fiscal priority in their household both now and throughout their child’s years at the School.
Families who wish to apply for financial aid should do so at the time they submit their application for admission. You may access the online application via the SSS Family Portal. Grants are awarded annually on the basis of demonstrated financial need.
There are no merit-based scholarships available at Holy Child; all aid is need-based.
