Financial Assistance

The priority deadline for new students to apply for financial aid for the 2016-17 school year is Friday, December 18, 2015. After this date, families who apply will be reviewed on a rolling basis as long as funds remain available. Families who have applied for aid in past years must re-apply each year. Please call Jan Cooney, Director of Admissions, if you are concerned about the deadline. We encourage families to submit an application even if it is past the deadline.

Financial Assistance Program

St. Mary Academy - Bay View and the Diocese of Providence strive to make a Catholic education affordable to families by providing financial assistance to students with demonstrated need in Kindergarten through grade 12. Awards are based on the applicant's ability to pay tuition as determined by the information submitted on the application form to the FACTS Management Company. For the 2015-2016 academic year, approximately 35% of our student body received some type of financial assistance. All awards are based on a family's financial need and the availability of funds.

Financial Aid Process

1.  Application: You may apply online at FACTS Management Company OR, if you prefer, paper applications are available in the Lower/Middle School Principal's Office, Admissions Office and Finance Office. The filing deadline for Priority Consideration is December 18, 2015. Each application must be accompanied by a $30.00 fee made payable to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment (checks, money orders and credit cards are accepted). Only one application is required per family for students applying to Catholic Schools within Rhode Island. These applications are also used by the Diocese of Providence to distribute tuition assistance awards from various sources, including the Catholic Charity Fund.

2.  Financial Assistance Award Letters: Responses to applications completed for Priority Consideration will be mailed on January 29, 2016. Notification of a Diocesan Award, if any, will be mailed separately, in the spring.
