Interested families need to submit their financial aid applications by April 30, 2021. Information and instructions can be found at SFICNJ.org.

 

Additionally, students may qualify for assistance from the Tri-County Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance, based solely on financial need, to New Jersey students in Morris, Passaic, and Sussex counties. The application deadline is February 15, 2021.  Information and instructions can be found at www.tcsfund.org.

Yes. St. Joseph Regional High School provides a limited amount of financial assistance to students who demonstrate serious financial need. Such grants are offered in the form of tuition discounts and do not require repayment. Families may apply online by visiting SJR’s FACTS Information Page under the Admissions tab. Under no circumstances will the school extend financial assistance to a student whose family has not completed a financial aid application.

Applications for returning families (Classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023) must be submitted by April 1, 2021, using 2020 tax information. Applications for incoming freshman families must be submitted by December 1, 2020, using  2019 tax information. Families must submit a new application to FACTS each year.

 

FINANCIAL AID GRANTS ARE OFFERED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH THE OFFICE OF THE SCHOOL PRESIDENT, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BUSINESS OFFICE.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE COACHES, FACULTY, OR STAFF MEMBERS INVOLVED IN THE FINANCIAL AID PROCESS. 

The only alternative to using the FACTS system is payment in full (due by July 1st.) If choosing this option, families are entitled to a $300 tuition discount, provided they are not receiving any other form of tuition reduction (scholarship or financial aid).

Saint Joseph Regional High School offers academic scholarships to top incoming freshmen. Academic scholarships are awarded in the form of full and partial tuition awards. For the class of 2025, students will have the opportunity to take the St. Joseph Regional Scholarship Test (1/16/2021, 1/20/2021, 1/23/2021). Students will select one of the offered dates to sit for the exam. Those receiving such grants will be notified of their scholarship following the test. 

 

The Admissions Committee also considers middle school grades and standardized test scores, and comments about a student’s conduct and effort in middle school in determining academic scholarships. All academic scholarships are renewable from year to year, provided the student continues to achieve superior grades and demonstrates exemplary conduct at St. Joseph Regional.

Four special scholarships are presented annually to incoming freshmen.  The scholarship opportunities listed below are awarded on the basis of both need and merit. Completed financial aid forms are used to identify the families of students with serious financial need. Academic records and test scores, letters of recommendation and other material from the student’s application assist in identifying students whose accomplishments merit consideration for these scholarships.
