Magnificat is dedicated to serve a student body that is economically and socially diverse. We recognize the financial commitment necessary for a Magnificat education, and have provided over $2 million in tuition assistance to our students this year. The primary source of tuition assistance and scholarships comes from the Magnificat Endowment Fund. Income from the fund, along with gifts from alumnae, private donors and several foundations, allows us to make a Magnificat education affordable for everyone. We are committed to helping interested and dedicated students so that they may experience what Magnificat can be for them—an investment that lasts a lifetime.

Qualifying for Assistance

Families should not hesitate to apply for need-based assistance. All applications are evaluated with attention given to a variety of factors, including family assets and family size. Additional consideration is given to families with a number of children at tuition-charging institutions (including day care, as well as elementary and high schools, and colleges).

Families requesting financial aid and applying for scholarships must fill out a FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application each year. FACTS is an independent organization that evaluates a family's ability to pay tuition. The analysis is then sent to Magnificat. The amount of assistance is determined by the school, and is based on family need and available resources.

Please refer to the Scholarship tab on our website for information about the many scholarship opportunities available to prospective students. In order to qualify, students must take the Magnificat High School Scholarship/Placement Exam in Fall 2016 and complete separate applications for the respective scholarships.

Applying for Aid - Prospective Students
