Grey Nun Academy offers two options to families in need of tuition assistance:
1. GNA Institutional Financial Aid
For GNA institutional financial aid, all families must apply through the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Program. The FACTS application process will require you to complete the following steps:
- Complete an online application through FACTS, using our FACTS identification number: 9863.
- Submit a $30 application fee to FACTS for processing.
- Documentation is required, including:
- A copy of your most recent tax return.
- W-2 Form.
- Supporting documentation for all other reportable family income (if applicable) such as Social Security, child support, spousal support, Workers Compensation, etc.
2. PA Tax Credit Scholarships
Additional financial aid may be available to residents of Pennsylvania by applying for a PA Tax Credit Scholarship through Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS), which requires a similar online application process. If you would like to apply for a PA Tax Credit Scholarship, please visit www.blocs.org to see if you qualify and submit an application. Grey Nun Academy’s school code is 91093.
Applications to either organization are held in strict confidence.
Financial Aid Considerations
Though we strive to make Grey Nun Academy affordable for all families, we do have limited funds. Preference for financial aid awards will be given to current Grey Nun Academy families and new families who apply via FACTS/BLOCS prior to May 1, 2018.
Students who apply after May 1, 2018 will be placed on a Financial Aid “wait list,” and the School will distribute remaining funds as judiciously as possible.
To be considered for a financial aid award, both parents are required to apply via FACTS and supply applicable financial information unless there is a separate legal financial agreement. In that case, official written documentation must be provided to the Director of Finance and Operations.
Please contact Dr. Gina Accardo with additional questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-968-4151 (ext. 107).
NEW FAMILY REFERRAL CREDIT
Current families who recommend Grey Nun Academy to friends and neighbors for the current or coming school year can earn tuition assistance credits of $1000 or more for helping to spread awareness of the benefits of a GNA education. The referring family may choose to give that credit to the new family as a gift towards their tuition expense.
