Tuition Assistance Information for Applicants

Applications for tuition assistance for the 2022-2023 school year open on April 1, 2022 and close on June 30, 2022. Families are encouraged to begin the process early as funds are distributed as needs are assessed and on a first-come first-served basis. Once the application period closes, you will not be able to apply.


St. Mary’s Springs Academy seeks to provide tuition assistance to those students in grades P3-12 whose family can provide documentation of need.


We believe enrollment in our school should not be limited to families who are able to pay full tuition. Our tuition assistance program enables us to assist deserving students who could not otherwise afford to attend. The tuition assistance program helps to achieve social and economic diversity within our school community. This goal is an integral and respected part of our school’s philosophy, operating budget, and fundraising objectives.


Tuition assistance is offered as a reduction of full tuition, which is determined through an analysis of family financial need. Student employment and athletic awards are not offered.


SMSA uses a third party company, FACTS Management Co.  The application cost is $35 (non-refundable).  Both new and existing families can apply for tuition assistance.  Click here for an overview of the financial aid process.

Things Can Change

If during the course of the academic year, you and your family experience a reduction or elimination of income, and/or facing undue hardship, we are happy to work with you in partnership to help you and your family.  Please contact the Business Office, if a need arises for your family after the start of the academic year.
