Tuition & Financial Grants

Our Financial Grant Philosophy

Visitation is committed to working with families to help provide a Visitation education for their children. We seek a diversified student body, which brings to the school students with many different talents and experiences from a variety of socioeconomic, religious and ethnic backgrounds.

For the 2016-17 school year, Visitation committed more than $1.5 million to the need-based financial grant program. Students in kindergarten through grade 12 are eligible to apply for these funds, and approximately 30 percent receive a financial grant. All awards are based on demonstrated need, with the Financial Grant Committee reviewing each case individually.

SSS By NAIS Logo

To be considered for a Visitation grant, families are required to complete an online grant application through School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), which is a subsidiary of NAIS (the National Association of Independent Schools). Visitation School uses SSS to ensure that the awarding of financial grants is determined in an equitable manner. SSS applies a consistent and objective formula to calculate a family’s ability to pay. This formula considers income, assets, liabilities, family size and the number of children attending tuition-charging schools.

Through funding by the Annual Catholic Appeal, the Catholic Education Center provides grant opportunities to individuals attending Catholic high schools. The Archdiocese uses the TADS form to determine grant amounts for each student. Parents of students entering grades 9-12 must complete an online TADS application, in addition to the SSS form, to be eligible for grants through the Annual Catholic Appeal Fund.

In addition to the online grant application, Visitation requires families applying for a financial grant to submit additional supporting documentation. Please see the Financial Grant Checklist for additional details regarding the required documents.
