Making the Investment in PVI

We understand that sending your child to a private high school is a significant investment for your family. We are grateful for your commitment to Paul VI Catholic High School, and we want to work with you to make sure a PVI education is within reach for your son or daughter.
With tuition covering 80% of the cost of a PVI education, we are grateful to those in our community who give generously. Their support helps to make up the difference and keep our school affordable. Thank you!

Applying for Grants

All students must submit a financial aid application to be considered for grants. Completion requires various steps:

  1. Applications are submitted to a third-party vendor, FACTS, which conducts an independent evaluation.  Apply for aid
  2. After completing the application, you must send the substantiating documentation to FACTS.  No application will be reviewed or given consideration until all supporting documentation has been submitted.
  3. The Financial Aid Committee at PVI receives the evaluation and makes decisions concerning allocation of funds.

Appeals Process

Paul VI and the Financial Aid Committee understand that not all family circumstances can be conveyed in the aid application.

If you wish to appeal an aid decision, your first step is to send an email (preferred) or a letter explaining your family circumstances. The Financial Aid Committee meets regularly to review appeals.

Application Timeline

  • The application process begins each November for the upcoming school year (e.g., November 2018 for the 2019-2020 school year).  
  • The Office of Catholic Schools determines the application deadline date. To be considered in the first round of decisions, applications must be received by that date.
    • The deadline is prior to the freshman acceptance letters being mailed. If you have an incoming student and will need financial assistance, we suggest you apply for financial aid prior to your acceptance.
  • Awards for the incoming freshman class are mailed at the same time as the acceptance letters. All other awards notifications are mailed by the end of May.

Important Notes

  • Families must reapply each year.
  • Award amounts can vary from year to year and continued aid cannot be guaranteed.
  • If you have students in other diocesan schools, you only need apply one time. Please list all students and schools on the application. This is easier for you and allows the diocese to see your family’s complete situation.
