Financial Aid

An important part of the mission of Holy Names Academy is to serve students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.  For the 2018-2019 school year, $1.56 million in financial aid was available to Holy Names Academy families.  Currently, 32.3% of enrolled students receive some level of need-based aid.

Financial aid is awarded both directly from Holy Names Academy and via the Academy from the Fulcrum Foundation of the Archdiocese of Seattle.  Financial aid may include a Holy Names Academy grant, an endowed scholarship, a student work-study assignment, or a Fulcrum Foundation grant.

The financial-aid application process will begin in November 2019 for the 2020-2021 school year. The application deadline for financial aid will be December 31, 2019. Financial-aid applications must be completed each year.

Incoming 9th-grade students may anticipate confirmation of financial-aid awards in mid-February.  Returning students may anticipate confirmation of financial-aid awards prior to the start of tuition payments for the next academic year.

Academic Scholarships

Holy Names Academy seeks to recognize young women who are academically outstanding. Awards of scholarships -- either one-time or renewable -- are based on academic merit, as shown by the student’s grades, her scores on the Scholarship/Placement Exam, teacher evaluation, school report, and application to HNA. No separate application for a scholarship is required.
