We are committed to making a St. Francis education accessible to all who are admitted, and as such over 50% of the student population receives some form of aid to attend. This commitment to diversity and scholarships makes us truly unique among other local, as well as national, Independent Schools. In addition to providing tuition assistance to students and their families, our financial aid helps cultivate a student body that more accurately reflects the diversity of the Louisville community. This allows our students to learn to appreciate and work with people from a variety of religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, which is critical to achieving our mission.
The Annual Fund, Imagine! revenue, grants and individual contributions help fund these scholarships. In addition to the general aid budgeted each year, we also have named scholarships.
