Need-Based Financial Aid Opportunities
DSHA is committed to providing outstanding college preparatory Catholic educational opportunities to qualified students regardless of a family's financial circumstances. One-third of families qualify for some need-based assistance and the average award is $3,580.
The amount of aid is determined upon careful evaluation of a family’s financial situation. Numerous factors, including income, number of children, amount of tuition paid at other schools and utilities are taken into consideration.
