Step 4:  School’s Review and Notification

Financial Aid Policy

The Cathedral School is committed to offering financial assistance to families who demonstrate need.  This financial assistance allows The Cathedral School the ability to ensure socioeconomic diversity within our school.  Nearly one-third of our students receive need-based financial aid.  Your child's application for admission and your request for financial aid are considered independently. However, admission decisions and financial aid awards are communicated at the same time.

If a family believes that they will require financial assistance, they must apply for financial aid when they apply for admission. Only due to a significant, unexpected change in circumstances, such as job loss, will consideration for financial aid be granted at a later date, including subsequent years, if the request is not made with a student's initial application for admission.
