Tuition & Financial Assistance
Assumption High School works diligently to meet the needs of our many families seeking financial assistance. Thanks to our generous donors and Assumption community, approximately $1.3 million was awarded in financial assistance for the 2019-2020 school year. In an effort to assess all applications, the school works with an independent organization, FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment which reviews applications and supporting information to make a need based determination. Maximum financial aid award given is up to half of the tuition cost.
Financial assistance at Assumption comes from a variety of sources including our annual Fund for Assumption, Rocket Spectacular Benefit Dinner & Auction, and the Walk for Assumption. Families receiving financial assistance are expected to assist with Rocket Spectacular. We are grateful for the generosity of our many donors who truly value the mission of AHS and assist us in making an Assumption education possible for your daughter.
