2022-2023 Financial Aid Information
We understand that as families look for a school that is the best fit for them, they may discover that financing their child’s education is a challenge. Damien offers assistance to families within a wide range of income levels, and the school makes every effort to provide each admitted student with the resources he needs to attend the school. We believe that students learn best when their peers are from a variety of economic, cultural and geographic backgrounds.

FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY

Damien High School uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, an independent, outside provider to collect and analyze family financial data. In computing the amount of the award, Damien considers factors such as family size, income, expenses, assets, liabilities, and priorities for spending. All information submitted is kept confidential. The primary responsibility for financing a private school education rests with the student’s family.

The student receiving financial assistance must maintain an acceptable academic rating and conduct record throughout his career here at Damien High School.

DIVORCED/SEPARATED/NON-MARRIED PARENTS

We expect financial information from both parents in cases of divorced or separated parents, and parents who never married, regardless of their legal relationship, and regardless of financial obligations as decided by the courts. If either parent is remarried, financial information from the step-parent is acceptable.

APPLICATION PROCESS

The application process is self-guided. You can navigate in and out of the program allowing you to go back to the application at a later time. There is a $40.00 application fee, payable by credit card at the end of the session. An online e-mail and a helpline is provided through FACTS if additional help is needed.

After completing the online application, you are required to submit:

        • IRS Form 1040 for the 2020 tax year
          All attachments will be required

        • W2’s for 2021
        • Your last paycheck stubs
        • Schedule C or C-EZ
        • Corporate Tax forms (K1, 1065, 1120s)


Your application cannot be processed without all the required documents listed above.
 

If you submit your 2020 tax forms, your 2021 tax return may be required (at a later date) if more information is needed.  

APPEAL PROCESS

In cases of special circumstances where the information on a family’s tax statement does not accurately represent a family's current situation, an appeal may requested.

In order to appeal a decision, you must:

        • Submit a letter of appeal to tuitionassistance@damien-hs.edu.
        • State the financial reason for your appeal and the additional amount in need.
        • Submit any financial documentation to support your current situation.

Please note that financial aid funds are limited and demand is high. It is critical that your application and required tax returns are submitted by the deadline date. 

If you need more information or assistance, please contact Kelvin J. Woods at woods@damien-hs.edu or at (909) 596-1946 x282.
