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.
