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. Academy admissions decisions on new students are not affected by financial considerations. We encourage families of limited means to apply for financial aid. Admissions and financial-aid processes are independent of each other. Academy of the Holy Names uses a FHSAA-approved outside financial aid service company, FACTS, to assist in collecting and analyzing financial data submitted by families. Each family's award is individualized and may include financial aid, scholarships, and/or work study. Due to finite resources, AHN may not be able to accommodate all new financial aid applicants.
In order to qualify for financial aid, a child must be accepted in the school and families must have submitted a financial-aid application through FACTS. 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. Financial-aid grants do not have to be repaid. 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.
Since every family's needs are different and many variables determine need-based assistance, please contact John Donohoe, chief financial officer, with any specific questions.
