Scholarship and Financial Aid Information Announced for 2019-2020

Several scholarship and financial aid opportunities are available for current students and families to learn about and apply for use during the 2019-2020 School Year.

The scholarships are broken down into four main groups: Holy Name-specific scholarships; the Cleveland Scholarship Program; need-based financial aid; and additional outside scholarships. Please read more about how to apply for these scholarships, and the deadlines associated with each, below.

Holy Name-Specific Scholarships: Hard copies of the scholarship application forms will be available during lunch periods on Thursday, February 7 and Friday, February 8. They will also be available in the Advancement Office throughout the month of February. Online versions can be found at https://www.holynamehs.com/holy-name-high-school-tuition/. Some of the scholarships are grade-level specific, while others are for all students to apply for. Please pay attention to the criteria.

The deadline for Holy Name-specific scholarships to be turned in to Holy Name is Thursday, March 21, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact Miss Kate McCall at kmccall@holynamehs.com, or at 440-886-0300 ext. 148.

Cleveland Scholarship Program: All students who reside in the city of Cleveland are eligible to apply for this $6,000 scholarship. An application must be submitted each year for renewal, and the paperwork can be found at https://www.holynamehs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/CSPRenewalForm.pdf. If your student does not currently receive the Cleveland Scholarship, the Request Form must be completed, and can be found at https://www.holynamehs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/CSPRequestForm.pdf.

The deadline for applications to be turned into Holy Name so they can be properly submitted to the Ohio Department of Education is early April 2019. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Trace Althoff at talthoff@holynamehs.com, or at 440-886-0300 ext. 100.

Need-Based Financial Aid: Holy Name partners with FACTS to handle all aspects of the financial aid application and verification process. In order to be considered for need-based financial aid from Holy Name and the Diocese of Cleveland, you must fill out the FACTS form. Go to https://www.holynamehs.com/holy-name-high-school-financial-aid/ to find the FACTS website, where you can register, sign-in and fill out the online application. The application will be finalized only after your 2018 tax return information has been submitted. Please note that no hard copy forms are available from FACTS this year; it all must be done online.

The deadline to submit your FACTS application is early April 2019. Please be aware that if you received financial aid from Holy Name during the 2018-2019 school year, it will not be renewed unless you complete the FACTS financial aid form now. If you have any questions about the FACTS Financial Aid Form, contact the Finance Office at 440-886-0300 ext. 124.

Outside Holy Name Scholarships: There are also several scholarships outside of Holy Name that you are invited to consider.

John P. Patton Memorial Scholarship – This full-tuition scholarship is open to current juniors and sophomores applicants who are children or grandchildren of current US military personnel or US veterans, and who are involved in school life and consistently demonstrate positive character traits. The student must also demonstrate financial need by completing the FACTS financial aid application; achieve a 3.0 or higher GPA; and complete a one-page essay. This scholarship would be applied to next year’s tuition. If you meet these criteria and would like to apply, applications are available in the main office or with Mrs. Blanc.

2019 Gala Auction: $1,500 Tuition Raffle Returns – Purchase a Gift Today!

The 2019 Gala Auction Committee needs your help with the Cocktails on the Green: Rising Tide Gala Auction that will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 in the Main Gym.

This event is the largest fundraising initiative for our students. Last year, the Gala Auction raised $171,000, with a significant portion of the proceeds going toward purchasing furniture for all the math and theology classrooms, as well as the art room. This year, the goal is to raise enough funds to complete more classrooms until the entire school has been updated.

How can you help us achieve the goal? Right now, we are in need of gifts for the Gala Auction, specifically the Silent Auction. If you are already in Christmas mode and will be making purchases online during the Cyber Monday and holiday shopping frenzy, please consider buying a gift for the Gala Auction off of the 2019 Wish List on Amazon at http://a.co/1tplgau! We are also appreciative of receiving Amazon gift cards to build our silent auction baskets.

Keep in mind that if you donate a $100 gift card, cash or a gift valued at $100 or more, you will be entered into a raffle for the chance to receive $1,500 off tuition for the 2019-2020 school year.

Gifts can be dropped off at any time. If you can only drop off gifts on weekends, a special ‘Holly Holy Name Gift Day’ will be held on Saturday, December 8 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., by the Team Shop in the school’s Main Foyer.

As an added incentive, parents/guardians who drop off gifts valued at $100 or more between now and December 8 will have their names entered TWICE into the $1,500 Tuition Credit Raffle. Your name will be entered twice for each $100 donation made.

The winner will be drawn at the March 30 Gala Auction.

Thank you for your support of this very important event! If you have any questions, or would like to know how else you can support the 2019 Gala Auction, please contact Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events Colleen Corrigan Day ’88 at 440-886-0300 ext. 136 or at cday@holynamehs.com.
