Sts. Simon & Jude School utilizes FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, a comprehensive service which handles all aspects of the financial aid application and verification process. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Once the application is completed via the FACTS website, it is reviewed for accuracy. Any parents submitting incomplete or unclear applications are contacted and the information is verified. (Without accurate verified information tuition aid analysis would not be of any value to a school or its families.) The information is then analyzed using formulas developed to calculate need based on a moderate standard of living for the geographic area of the applicant. FACTS then sends comprehensive Summary Reports to the school, providing all of the necessary information for the administration to distribute need-based financial aid. With the introduction of a third party (FACTS) into the financial aid eligibility and evaluation process, we are able to achieve total objectivity, professionalism and consistency.
