List of 7 items.

  • Financial Aid

    Financial assistance is based on the parents' financial need as determined by FACTS and reviewed by a financial aid committee. Deliberations of this committee are confidential, and all decisions by this committee are final and binding. Maximum assistance offered from scholarships and financial aid combined does not exceed 1/2 of a student’s tuition. 
    Regrettably, BLHS is not able to meet the financial aid needs of all students who apply. All decisions are made on a year-by-year basis. There can be no assurance that a student receiving financial assistance in one year will be offered financial assistance at a comparable level, in any subsequent year.

    Financial assistance notification/denial letters are emailed only to financial aid applicants whose forms were completed by the deadline, February 2020. Forms received subsequent to the deadline, or incomplete applications will be reviewed if aid becomes available; late/incomplete, and second-round applicants will only be notified if they are granted aid. Financial assistance must be applied for EACH school year.

    The FACTS financial aid application for the 2020-2021 school year is now open. We encourage all of our families (and potential families) to apply. To be considered for financial aid, below is a list of the required documents for Bishop Lynch High School:   
      
      2018 Tax return

      2018 W-2s/1099s
      2019 W-2s/1099s

    Click here to get your app started!

    To be considered for Bishop Lynch's financial aid, applications must be final with FACTS by February 14, 2020.  Documents must be uploaded by this date for FACTS to have enough time to verify your data and change your application status to complete. The Financial Aid Committee will not review incomplete applications. We invite families to start the process early, so all you would need to do is upload your 2019 W-2’s/1099’s when you receive them.  FACTS will verify your documents as you submit them.

    Please keep in mind that the Diocese will also review your application. Following are the Diocese requirements and deadlines:
    IMPORTANTIf you are submitting your FACTS application by or before 1/5/2020 and would like to be considered in the Diocese priority round, please make sure you use the same FACTS log-in/account you used for 2019/2020. If you create a new FACTS account or use a different email, you will be considered a new FACTS applicant; you will not be considered in the Diocese priority round even if you submitted your application by 1/5/20. For log-in assistance, contact FACTS.
     
    Please contact Ilia Preza at ilia.preza@bishoplynch.org with any questions.

  • Diocesan Financial Aid

    The Diocese will also review your FACTS application and their requirements and deadlines are different. Attached below are the requirements and deadlines to be considered for Diocese financial aid:

     
  • Funding Deadlines

    Funding by the deadline reserves your student(s) course schedule(s) for the 2019-2020 school year.  Failure to meet the tuition funding deadline will result in the deletion of the student(s) course schedule(s); Schedules will then be made available to transfer students.  In order to add the student back to the roster and re-create a schedule, a non-refundable tuition late fee of $500 will be collected.
  • Individual Scholarship Funds

    There is not a separate application for BL scholarships. All students that complete the application process are considered for all scholarships available to students.

    Scholarship recipients are chosen by the Admissions Committee. Consideration is based on, but not limited to, the student’s ISEE test scores, record of academic success, conduct, leadership, and citizenship. Certain academic scholarships are awarded to students meeting the financial need requirement based on the FACTS application on file.

    Approximately $181,650 (average award per student $2,163) was awarded in scholarships to the freshman class for the 2018-2019 school year.

    Scholarships and financial aid notification letters will be sent no later than March 8, 2019.
