Financial Aid


Parents of incoming freshmen who wish to be considered for financial aid must complete and submit a financial aid application to Financial Aid Independent Review (FAIR). The priority financial aid deadline is December 15, 2016. Families who meet the December 15 deadline will receive notification of any aid by March 1. Families who submit a financial aid application after December 15 and prior to March 4 will receive aid notification in mid-April. A paper application is available upon request.
To submit an application:

  1. Go to www.fairapp.com and click on the “Parent Login” link.  If you are a returning FAIR applicant, your email and password are still active in FAIR’s system.       
  2. School code for St. Teresa’s Academy:  184  
  3. Password:  sta184      
  4. Early applications for incoming freshmen will be accepted beginning November 2, 2016 and are due by December 18, 2016.

Families of incoming freshmen may use their 2015 tax information, include their most recent paystub(s) showing year to date (YTD) information and submit their application by December 18, 2016, so that financial aid decisions may be made in time for freshmen registration in March, 2017.  All tax information is sent directly to FAIR -- not to St. Teresa’s Academy.
 
Your processing fee for the standard application payable to FAIR is $30.00 to be paid with Visa or MasterCard if applying online.  If applying by mail, you may pay by check.  

• For the few of you who have one incoming freshmen and one older daughter in our school, you may apply early for both daughters if you wish.
 
• In the case of a divorced/separated family, St. Teresa’s Academy requires both parents to complete an application or provide court documentation stating one parent has no financial responsibility and no custodial rights. We will not consider tuition assistance for a student until both parent's applications are complete. 
 
• Your application is submitted to FAIR, not St. Teresa's Academy.
