Tuition & Financial Aid
An Academy of the Holy Names education is an investment in your child's future.
An Academy of the Holy Names education is an investment in your child's future. AHN welcomes inquiries from current and prospective families about our financial aid program. We strive to partner with families to make sure that an Academy education is accessible to all qualified students. We seek students poised to become educated leaders who are independent, ethically responsible and prepared to meet the challenges of society with confidence, regardless of their financial status.
The Academy understands that affordability is a major consideration for parents, and both the Admissions Office and the Business Office are here to serve as a resource. The Academy operates with a “need-blind” admissions process, meaning that admissions decisions on new students are not affected by financial considerations. While the admissions and financial-aid processes are independent of each other, the application procedures occur simultaneously. All information is strictly confidential and limited to review by the financial aid committee. The school expects that families will keep the same discretion regarding awards and decisions.
In order to qualify for financial aid, a child must be accepted in the school and families must have submitted a financial-aid application. Need-based financial aid is a grant, not a loan, and is allocated on first-come, first-served basis to families. Financial aid is not guaranteed, and each family is expected to use all resources available to them in paying for an Academy education. Since financial-aid grants do not have to be repaid, they help to bridge the gap between what a family can afford and the cost of an Academy education.

AHN is committed to distributing our resources equitably by trying to meet the demonstrated financial need of families whose children are offered admission. To enable us to do this, with finite resources available, the following policies and guidelines have been adopted. AHN reviews all applicants on a case by case basis. A student's application for admission is not affected by his/her application for Financial Aid. Priority is given to current families who adhere to the deadlines and have met all financial obligations to the school.
Financial Aid is annual. A family must reapply each year.
We will do all we can to make it possible for students to continue at AHN. We expect a family in this situation to make other adjustments to their family expenditures, in addition to seeking financial aid, to help cover the costs of private education. If a family's financial situation improves greatly the annual grant will be adjusted to reflect the positive gain.
All parents must furnish a copy of their current and previous year tax return, including all schedules and copies of W-2's.
If parents are separated or divorced, all paperwork, including PFS and tax documentation, is requested from both parents.
If the non-custodial parent refuses to submit the necessary paperwork to the Financial Aid Office, the application for financial aid may not be processed. If the custodial parent has not heard from the non-custodial parent in a period of time, a letter of verification from a disinterested party (minister, attorney, etc.) will be required. A copy of the divorce decree will be required as well.
If there are stepparents, the Committee will consider all partners' assets and liabilities as we review the student's financial situation.
All parents who own a business/farm will be required to submit a copy of their current business tax return including cash flow statements, balance sheets, and any other information relevant to the business.
All tax documents must be signed. Parents should submit a complete tax return.
All parents must sign a release to allow AHN to obtain a copy of their tax return from the IRS (Form 4506-T).
AHN will not consider ordinary business or rental depreciation or loss in calculating financial need.
In the interest of equity, if one parent elects to stay at home and not seek employment, the Committee will impute a basic income of $20,000 for the non-working parent. An exception is made if the parent is at home caring for a preschool age child or an elderly parent.
If a parent elects to return to school or to change jobs resulting in a decrease in a family's financial resources, AHN cannot underwrite this family choice with greater financial assistance.
If multiple children attend tuition-charging schools or colleges, it is expected that the family will be applying for Financial Aid at all schools. AHN should not be expected to implicitly subsidize tuition at other schools or colleges.
Families must submit all forms including PFS and tax returns by the specified deadlines or the request for Financial Aid may not be processed.
AHN reserves the right to request additional information or withdraw financial assistance from families at any time should discrepancies be discovered in the information provided.
High school students may apply for the student work-study program. Participants are required to work 100 hours over the course of the school year. Every attempt is made to schedule work around the student's educational and extra-curricular activities. Applications for these programs are available through the financial aid process.
Tuition can be paid in one payment, by the semester or on a monthly basis. Tuition rates for the following school year are determined in January and payment begins in July. A non-refundable initial registration fee of $450 is charged to first-time registrants. In addition, a $550 deposit toward tuition will be collected with registration. Charges for textbooks, supplies and uniforms are in addition to the tuition.
