Financial Aid

Wildwood Catholic Academy appreciates that tuition payments may be a financial hardship for some families. There is financial aid available on a need basis. Financial awards are recalculated every year. An independent company, FACTS, prepares an analysis for us on a family’s ability to pay and this serves as a basis for awards. Any family seeking financial assistance MUST go through the FACTS application. No aid can be awarded without a completed FACTS analysis.
 
All families are expected to register with FACTS for automatic payments with the exception of those who pay in one or two payments: in full by August 15, or half in August and half in January. Payments may be made at the school or through FACTS.
