Affording SNG

Affording an SNG Education

Saints Neumann Goretti is committed to making our educational experience accessible to all families. Through the generosity of our alumni and friends, we are able to offer need-based financial assistance to offset a portion of tuition to those who qualify. Financial aid grants typically cover between 10 – 25% of the total cost of tuition at SNG, and can be combined with academic and outside scholarships. We strongly encourage every family to apply for financial aid. Financial aid requests have no impact on admissions decisions.

In order to be considered for need-based tuition assistance, families must complete a FACTS Financial Aid application. Please see below for additional information.

  • Applications will be reviewed and award decisions made after a student has completed the admissions process and been accepted to SNG.
  • Please ensure when starting your application that you select the school year in which the applicants plans to enter Ss. Neumann Goretti. For most families at this time, this will be 2020-2021.
  • Our school is listed as “Neumann Goretti High School” on the FACTS application. When adding our school to your application, we recommend searching by ZIP code 19148 to find and add “Neumann Goretti High School.”
  • Depending on your application some or all of the following documents may be required. A complete list of required documents will be available once you have submitted your application along with instructions on how to upload your documents.
  • FACTS charges a one-time $35 application fee. You will be prompted to submit your payment once you complete your application.
