The sooner a family applies, the more funding we anticipate to be available for your grant package.

Any family that has completed their application ahead of the encouraged deadlines will be reviewed for financial assistance first.

No family is guaranteed a financial aid offer until your application is Complete and you have received an official Financial Aid offer letter from the Admissions Office.
Scholarships and Financial Aid are divided into three categories at Bonner and Prendergast: Academic Scholarships, Financial Aid and Other Scholarships and Grants. This aid is directed to tuition only and does not cover fees and other expenses. While part of this amount is awarded as four year academic scholarships to outstanding performers on the scholarship exam, the larger part of tuition assistance goes to students as need based grants.
Families who need assistance uploading their 2020 or, when available, 2021 tax information, or need assistance completing the application, may also send an e-mail and schedule a time to drop the forms off to the Admissions Office.
Questions regarding the FACTS Financial Aid application and process may direct questions to Admissions Representatives, or by contacting an Admissions Representative. If you have not yet completed a Financial Aid application for the '21-22 school year, we advise you to do so immediately.
