Financial Aid

Financial assistance is available to all St. Bartholomew Academy families based upon need.  The Financial Aid program is a two-step process. Parents must first complete and mail the Scholarship Fund for Inner City Children (SFIC) Financial Aid Application and then submit the St Bartholomew Academy Aid Application. St Bartholomew Academy will not consider any financial aid request without your prior application to SFIC.  Please note that you do not have to live in an inner-city to be eligible for the SFIC needs-based scholarship.

Although financial assistance for the current school year (2017-2018) is now closed, financial aid applications for the next school year (2018-2019) started January 30, 2018, with a deadline of April 30, 2018. Decisions on financial aid for the next school year  will be made in June, 2018. Tuition payments reflecting these awards are due July 2018-May 2019.
