Financial Aid

Applicants for the Class of 2024 (grade 9 entry in September 2020) who wish to apply for need-based financial aid must do so between November 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019.  

Currently enrolled Freshwomen (Class of 2023), Sophomores (Class of 2022) and Juniors (Class of 2021) requesting need-based financial aid must apply by March 31, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year and are expected to submit the 2019 tax returns with their application. We have set our application deadline to March 31 in order to ensure that there is adequate time for all applications/tax information to be verified by FACTS before the Financial Aid Committee meeting.   Fontbonne Academy cannot award financial aid if a family's application/tax information has not been verified by FACTS.

Please note that current recipients of financial aid must re-apply each year.

Your financial aid application is carefully reviewed by our Financial Aid Committee and any award is determined based on funds available and needs across each class.

All need-based financial aid is awarded in the form of Work-Study grants to help defray the cost of tuition. Students will be assigned various jobs on campus before school,  after school or during unscheduled time.

If you have questions about financial aid, please contact Christin Schow (above) or Barbara Higgins at 617.615.3007, or by email at
