Financial Aid

Cardinal Gibbons High School firmly believes that cost should not be a barrier that prevents deserving students from attending our school—all of our admissions decisions are made without regard to financial need.

Each year, we offer more than $1.6 million in financial aid to about 16% of our student body. In keeping with our mission, all aid is distributed on the basis of financial need.  

Need-Based Financial Aid

We encourage any family who thinks that Cardinal Gibbons may be beyond their means to apply for financial aid. 

We use the FACTS grant and aid assessment to process aid applications. Awards are based on a family's finances, the overall need of the applicant pool, and our financial aid budget. For the upcoming school year, we have budgeted more than $1.7 million for financial aid.

Notification of financial aid awards for incoming students will be mailed at the time acceptance letters are sent. Returning students will receive notification prior to the re-registration deadline.

Application Deadline: Dec. 31
