Financial Aid & Scholarships

Neumann Goretti

Neumann Goretti is committed to enrolling a diverse student body from varying economic backgrounds. Financial aid and admission are two separate processes; financial aid requests have no impact on the admission decisions made by the Admission Committees.

All financial aid is based on demonstrated financial need, as determined by the information you provide in your financial aid application. A copy of last years tax return, a valid email address, and a $25 fee chargeable as credit or debit is all that you need to submit the application.

The Financial Aid Committee must consider each family’s ability to pay, and the availability of Neumann Goretti’s financial aid funds. The total amount of funds available is far surpassed by total need of all families who apply.

However, we are still able to assist all families showing financial need as our goal is to provide an affordable tuition model for all students.
