At Northwest Catholic, we are committed to providing a high quality education at an exceptional value. We try to assist parents to help make their choice to enroll a child at NWC an affordable and satisfying decision.
Financial Aid based on financial need is determined with the help of an assessment by SMARTAid. The Financial Aid application and instructions are available HERE. Families must complete the online application by December 1, 2021 using the NWC school code 13337. Applications received after December 1, 2021 will be placed on a waiting list for consideration, if funds become available.
Each financial aid application involves a unique set of family circumstances. When assessing a family's financial aid need, there are many factors taken into consideration, such as income, assets, debt, tuition at other schools, number of family members, age of parents, and other factors reported on the SMARTAid application.
Both parents/guardians are expected to submit financial information in order to establish a student’s eligibility for financial aid. You may submit a petition for a waiver if your child has minimal or no contact with the noncustodial parent/guardian.
Parents/Guardians seeking financial aid must submit an application annually. Those receiving academic scholarships do not need to re-apply.
What Do Our Parents Say?
Choosing NWC for our children has been one of the best and most important decisions our family has ever made. NWC made our children more aware of the people around them. Having a diverse ethnic and socioeconomic student population gave our children a better picture of life outside of our own town. Also participating in different service projects gave them good life skills and made them more compassionate people. Most important, they have been taught to listen and trust in God and to lean on him through life’s ups and downs. It is a gift that will last a lifetime."
