    Financial Aid Applications for the 2018-19 school year are now being accepted for current St. Matthias students via the family TADS account. See below for the TADS link.  Applications for prospective families will be open in January. Aid is based on documented financial need. Families with a documented need are eligible for local and Archdiocesan aid. Current and prospective students were awarded just over $49,000 in aid for the 2015-2016 school year again for the 2016-2017 school year.

  • SJL Scholars Program
    Started in 2014, the SJL Scholars program pairs private donors with students with documented need for financial assistance.

Families must have a financial aid application on file in good standing to be eligible.
