Scholarships/Financial Aid



St. Francis Prep offers a number of full and partial scholarships, awarded to students who select SFP as their first choice. All scholarships are based on performance on the TACHS and CHSEE Exams (top percentile), 6th, 7th, and 8th grade marks, as well as attendance, lateness and conduct. Students are notified in their acceptance letters in January if they are recipients of a scholarship.


We also offer a need-based Tuition Assistance Program. All families are invited to apply. Applications are available through our finance office once a student is registered. Please contact Ms. Susan D’Andrea at ext. 225.


St. Francis Prep offers no interest, no fee payment plans. Registered applicants may inquire with Ms. Lisa Jones ext. 337.

Outside Scholarships:

The following websites offer outside scholarships, financial aid services, and sponsors who offer assistance. Please note that Saint Francis Preparatory School is not directly affiliated with any of these websites. There are many other websites in the Internet and students are encouraged to do a thorough search. It is recommended that you search by your parents' occupation (example: FDNY & NYPD, healthcare, Department of Sanitation, etc.), race, religion, and ethnicity/country of origin. Scholarships are also listed under the term Vouchers. Please carefully review the eligibility requirements as some sites mix high school and college scholarships together. 

First, we recommend that families review this informational website on financing a private school education.
