APPLYING FOR NEED-BASED AID
Financial aid applicants are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Each student award decision is unique. Please note, Admissions decisions are need-blind, and preliminary award estimates are available upon request.
Nerinx Hall partners with FACTS Grant & Aid (an independent, third party company) to conduct financial analysis and determine a family’s financial need. Based on the information families provide in their FACTS application and supporting tax documents, Nerinx makes informed decisions about Need-Based Aid. Applicants using FACTS are subject to a one-time, non-refundable application fee of $30 per family payable to FACTS during the application process. The same application can be applied to multiple institutions provided those institutions use the FACTS Grant & Aid assessment services. The application takes approximately 30-60 minutes to complete. If parents are divorced and both parties are responsible for tuition, parents should apply separately. In a case where a custodial parent has remarried, the financial situation of the stepparent will be considered, and the stepparent must be listed as a co-applicant, as awards are based on household income.
You will need to provide the information below for all parents to submit an application:
- Current pay stub(s)
- 2019 Federal Tax return
- 2020 W-2s as soon as available but no later than February 12, 20201.
For questions regarding tuition, and FACTS, please contact Director of Finance Margie Harper at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314.968.1505 ext. 136.
There is so much value in the Nerinx education. I know it prepared my daughter in terms of academics, but it also prepared her for life. Nerinx provides a worldview you just don't find at other Catholic schools. Students are exposed to so many life-changing topics—not just in the classroom from teachers and their peers, but through the service program. You see the world at Nerinx. My daughter is so far ahead of her peers in terms of working with and respecting people who might have differing opinions than she does. She learned incredibly valuable tools. I'd send her to Nerinx again without a doubt.
Merit Scholarships & Diversity Awards
Nerinx Hall offers Merit Scholarships to incoming freshmen students who have demonstrated academic excellence. The value of the Merit Scholarship each eligible student receives is based upon her cumulative percentile score on a nationally-normed standardized test (e.g. Iowa Test of Basic Skills – ITBS or ERB).
Fall 2020 Update for Applicants for the Class of 2025: Nerinx will honor the complete composite score from 7th Grade Testing (Iowa, ITBS, ERB) for scholarship purposes.
- $5,000 yearly scholarship value with cumulative scores in the 99th percentile
- $3,000 yearly scholarship value with cumulative scores in the 98th percentile
- $2,000 yearly scholarship value with cumulative scores in the 97th percentile
Merit Scholarships are renewable for all four years of the recipient’s Nerinx Hall education if the student maintains a minimum 3.5 GPA, is active in the school community through service, leadership and extra-curricular participation, and has good conduct. All applicants are automatically considered for a Nerinx Hall Merit Scholarship during the admissions process. Qualifying students will be notified at the time of admission.
For applicants without nationally-normed scores or for those who want an opportunity to improve their nationally-normed score:
All applicants must take the nationally-normed High School Placement Test (HSPT) at Nerinx Hall on Saturday, December 5, 2020. This test will be used to provide a baseline for admission and may also qualify a student for the merit scholarship.
As a Catholic high school founded by the Sisters of Loretto in 1924, Nerinx Hall continues to embrace the Loretto belief that diversity enriches. To encourage and support diversity in our student body, the Nerinx Hall Board of Directors created the Diversity Award. The Diversity Award is a monetary award that is renewable for four years. The amount of the award varies annually. The deadline for the Diversity Award is December 1 prior to an applicant's freshman year in conjunction with admission.
Eligible candidates for this award must:
- Be an 8th grade minority student
- Demonstrate academic excellence
- Demonstrate leadership in their school or community
- Demonstrate a commitment to service
- Submit an application for admission
- Complete the Diversity Award application
- Ask an adult to complete the recommendation form
- Submit the Diversity Award application and other required documents by the deadline
Questions about the Diversity Award can be directed to email@example.com.
