Financial aid is available to all U.S. families who demonstrate a financial need. The amount of the aid is based on demonstrated need.
Once a prospective student is accepted to St. Lawrence Seminary High School, each family receives a financial aid information. If a family chooses to apply, the financial aid application is completed by the family online with an outside, independent firm. This firm reviews both the completed application and any supporting, required information, for example the family’s previous year’s tax forms which the family uploads to their website.
It typically takes six to eight weeks from the time the family applies online for the outside firm to complete their review. The results are then reviewed by the St. Lawrence Seminary Business Office, who then determines the amount of financial aid a family will receive. Once this step is finished, the Business Office contacts the family with the results.
There are various payment plans available. International families can decide to make one or two payments. Domestic families can choose to make payments in one, two, four or ten installments. Payment can be made by cash, check, credit card/debit card or wire transfer.
St. Lawrence also partners with Smart Tuition (parent.smarttuition.com) for the processing and collection of our families’ tuition and fees. St. Lawrence and Smart Tuition work together to provide payment plans, access to online account balances, payment receipts and reminders.
The Business Office kindly requests that all financial aid applications be completed as soon as possible upon your son’s acceptance to St. Lawrence.
Any questions regarding the financial aid process should be directed to the St. Lawrence Business Office at: 920-753-7500 ext 7300.
We knew SLS was the best educational option for our son, but we did not know how we would pay his tuition. We were surprised and delighted that St. Lawrence was willing to work with us to make his education affordable.
We have two boys attending St. Lawrence. Due to finances, we were uncertain whether we would be able to send our younger son and considered enrolling him elsewhere until his brother graduated. St. Lawrence worked with us and made it financially possible to send both boys. We are so grateful for this opportunity.
