Tuition Assistance

It’s our goal to make Holy Spirit Prep affordable for as many families as possible. That’s why we allocate $2 million in need-based financial aid each year to about 45% of our students, who come from a wide range of financial circumstances. If Holy Spirit Prep is the right fit for your family, but the cost of tuition feels out of reach, we encourage you to submit a financial aid application.

Apply for Tuition Assistance

At Holy Spirit Prep, our financial aid program provides support for students who would not be able to attend a Catholic college preparatory school otherwise. The application process for financial aid is simple, and allows us to analyze a family’s financial position so we can determine how to best assist them. All admissions decisions are made independently of a family’s ability to pay full tuition.

How to Apply

Complete our application process by submitting the required documents through School and Student Services (SSS). HSP partners with SSS to process the information that families have provided regarding income, assets, debts, and equity, and then forwards HSP a Report of Family Contribution (RFC), which we use as a guideline for aid awards.

Apply for Enrollment

If you think Holy Spirit Prep is the right fit for your family, we strongly encourage you to apply. To streamline the process, we’ve partnered with Ravenna, a popular online admission and enrollment system frequently used by private and independent schools. Through our Ravenna portal, you can schedule visits, complete an application, submit supporting documents, upload forms, track your application status, and ultimately view the admissions decision.
