Through the generosity of our benefactors and the success of our annual fundraisers, Carondelet has been able to provide tuition assistance to many young women who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Carondelet. This year, Carondelet is providing almost 25% of the student body with tuition assistance which amounts to approximately $1,280,000.

Tuition assistance is awarded to families who demonstrate financial need. Many families who send their student to Carondelet High School make financial sacrifices. The Tuition Assistance Program is designed to help those families that even with their sacrifices, need help in meeting their financial obligations.

Carondelet has partnered with FACTS to assist with information gathering and the assessment of tuition assistance. FACTS will provide an independent and reasonable assessment of the ability of each family to pay tuition. FACTS does not make any decisions about recipients and the amounts of financial aid awarded. Recipients and amounts of aid are determined by Carondelet’s Tuition Assistance Committee.
