Scholarships & Assistance
It is our goal to make sure that all families have access to the quality Catholic education that Nativity provides. We are committed to working with all of our families who are in need of financial assistance within the guidelines of our school budget. Regardless of your financial position, you may apply for financial aid at Nativity.
All financial aid awards are based on need. Once registration for the upcoming school year is complete, families interested in applying for financial assistance are asked to fill out the application under “Financial Aid” on the TADS website. You will be asked to provide a variety of information regarding your financial and family situation. Please allot adequate time as there are several sections to the application. The deadline for applying for financial aid for the 2023-24 school year is February 22, 2023.
Please note that Financial Aid awards do not carry over and you must re-apply each year.
New Family Scholarship
We know starting a new school can be stressful. We hope to eliminate some of that stress by offering all new K-8 families a $500 discount off their first year tuition. The discount will automatically be taken off your tuition once you enroll.
Aim Higher Scholarship
The Aim Higher Foundation provides scholarships to children whose families are seeking tuition assistance for a K-8 Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $1,000 to students who meet the need-based criteria determined by the Aim Higher Foundation. Applications are available through mytads.com when applying for financial aid. Near the end, add your child(ren)’s name when it asks if you’d like to be considered for the Aim Higher Foundation scholarship. All scholarship applications must be completed yearly for both new and returning recipients. The deadline to apply for the Aim Higher Scholarship is February 22, 2023.
