Financial Assistance

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. All awards are based on a family's financial need and the availability of funds.
