The percentage of LF students receiving financial aid
The generosity of our alumnae and other donors, coupled with external sources of tuition assistance, help us make a Little Flower education as affordable as possible.
|SCHOLARSHIPS FROM LITTLE FLOWER|
All 8th grade girls are encouraged to take the annual Little Flower Scholarship Examination, which is offered in late October/early November. Students who perform exceptionally well receive scholarships, which are renewable yearly provided they meet certain academic criteria. The fee for the Scholarship test is $25.
Saint Therese Scholarships
Partial scholarships ($7000 over 4 years/$1,750 per year) are awarded to students demonstrating excellence in service and leadership, and who are working to the best of their intellectual ability. One student from each Archdiocesan elementary school may be recommended by her teacher or grade school principal. (Schools with more than 20 girls in their 8th grade class may nominate more than one student.) Non-Catholic schools may also nominate a student. Awardees are typically notified by February.
Fine Arts Scholarships
We offer three partial scholarships ($7,000 over 4 years/$1,750 per year) for students entering the Fine Arts Program in the ninth grade. There are specific guidelines for these scholarships each year including: enrollment in the Studio Art, Vocal Music or Instrumental Music program all four years, maintaining a specific grade point average, as well as a good discipline/attendance record. One scholarship is available in each of the following categories: Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, and Art. Applications are accepted through November 15th.
Grant of $4,000 ($1,000 per year) to all girls whose mother graduated from Little Flower to thank you for continuing our fine tradition.
|NEED-BASED FINANCIAL AID|
One FACTS tuition assistance application is required to receive assistance from Little Flower, the Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program, and Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS). The fee for the application is $30, payable by debit or credit card. We recommend that you begin the application process in November of the year before the school year for which you are applying for assistance. The awards will be announced on a rolling basis starting in January. You will receive notice of tuition assistance from Little Flower, not FACTS.
