Financial Assistance
Families who would like to apply for financial assistance should go to or contact the Financial Aid Coordinator. Financial assistance decisions are made independently of admission decisions; one is in no way affected by the other. Once accepted to Oratory Prep, financial aid candidates are then referred to the Financial Aid Committee, which determines whether a student has demonstrated financial need.

Applications received after the December 6, 2019 priority deadline are welcome, with the understanding that financial aid funds may be expended by this time.
