Financial Aid
St. Francis High School of La Canada Flintridge provides need-based financial aid to approximately 20% of its families. Qualified students who require assistance in meeting tuition costs may apply for financial aid. In order for us to allocate our resources wisely and fairly, we have enlisted the help of Independent School Management’s FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) Program. FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service indicating their recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Applications are reviewed by the SFHS Financial Aid Committee who determines the allocation of financial aid awards.
 
Incoming Freshmen ONLY
Incoming ninth graders must apply online through FAST by January 31. Parents will be asked to mail to FAST a complete copy of the family’s Federal & State Income Tax Return for 2015 & 2014 and W-2s. Pre-addressed envelopes are available in the business office. Notification of financial aid awards will be sent simultaneously with admissions decisions. Merit Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s performance on the entrance examination given at St. Francis High School.
 
ALL Returning and Transfer Students –
Families must re-apply each year online through FAST by April 15. Parents should NOT apply until after information from your 2016 tax returns are available. Parents will be asked to mail to FAST a complete copy of the family’s Federal & State Income Tax Return for 2016 and W-2s. If needed, pre-addressed envelopes are available in the business office.
