Financial Assistance

Financial aid is available for students in grades 9-12 and is based upon documented need.

There are two financial aid programs available to offset the tuition expense for attending St. Vincent Pallotti High School. The Archdiocese of Washington and Pallotti have partnered with Tuition Aid Data Service (TADS) to process financial aid applications for the upcoming academic year. Complete one application, pay only one fee and have access to both resources.

To apply for need-based assistance from Pallotti, families must first apply to the Archdiocese of Washington. New students' families should complete admissions and financial aid applications concurrently; financial aid will only be awarded to students who have been accepted for admission.

A family's need for financial aid is determined each year based upon the recommendation of TADS. All parties in the household must be listed on the financial aid application including married, blended families, step parents, and/or those living together. The following are taken into consideration: income, assets, number of dependents, number of children enrolled in tuition schools as well as any unusual expenses.

In order to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for both the Archdiocese of Washington and Pallotti, you must submit your application and supporting documents to TADS by December 1, 2019. Receiving aid from either source does not guarantee financial assistance from the other. If you miss the December deadline, you can still apply for financial aid through Pallotti. If applying to Pallotti only, the application and supporting documents must be submitted to TADS by January 3, 2020.
