Financing a Saint Thomas Academy Education
We are committed to working with you to clarify the financial aid process and explain financing options. Last year 49.6% of Academy students collectively received over $3.2 million dollars in financial awards and assistance.
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
All tuition assistance applicants must complete a Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) application. TADS is used by most Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to determine a family's tuition need. TADS applications can be filled online or can be printed and mailed to you from TADS. Completing your TADS application online will expedite the process.
The deadline for financial aid applications is January 15, 2023. Submitting TADS applications after the deadline may affect a student’s financial award, as we have limited funding. Funding cannot be allocated to TADS applicants unless the student has been granted admission to Saint Thomas Academy. TADS may be filed prior to the admission decision, but notification of potential tuition assistance qualification will not be sent until after a student is admitted.
Understanding Saint Thomas Academy Financial Assistance
