Financial Aid Information

Mater Dei High School uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct financial need analysis. The application process for financial aid is separate from the admissions process. Please understand that financial aid grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those who qualify.

New families may begin the financial aid process before the official notification of their student’s acceptance and final registration. However, they must complete the entire admission application and be accepted to Mater Dei before they will hear back from the financial review committee on their potential financial aid grant. It is advised that families work on admissions and financial aid applications concurrently.  Returning families must re-apply for financial aid each year. 


As stated above, need based financial aid is available on a first-come, first-served basis to those who. The deadline for completed packets is February 15, 2022.

We continue to accept and review financial aid applications beyond this date. However, given the demand for need-based financial aid, we make every attempt to provide assistance to qualified families, but strongly encourage applicants to comply with deadlines and required paperwork.

Families that submit their financial aid application with the proper supporting documents after the deadline run the risk of not receiving financial aid for the next school year.

Our Financial Aid application is now closed for the 2022-2023 school year. Please check back here shortly for next year's process. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Business office.
