Financial Aid Options

Option 1: Parishioners Tuition Reduction

Cardinal Gibbons wants to support those who support the Church and our Catholic mission. Active parishioners of the Church, who support their parish and regularly attend Mass on both Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation, are eligible for a discretionary tuition reduction.

To verify that parents/guardians have been supporting members of their parish for the past year, a representative from Cardinal Gibbons will directly reach out to parish administrators for verification of active parishioner status through March 2019. After the March deadline has passed, it then becomes the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the parish in order to obtain proof of support. Once active parishioner status has been established and verified, no changes will be made to the 2018-2019 tuition rate after Aug. 1.

Option 2: Sibling Discount

Families that have more than one child enrolled at Cardinal Gibbons for the designated school year may be eligible for a discretionary tuition reduction.

Option 3: Tuition Assistance

State Sponsored Tuition Assistance
If a student wishes to apply for need-based financial aid they must apply through the Step Up for Students Scholarship (SUFS) or the Florida Private School Scholarship (AAA), and must also apply online through FACTS. Students are only eligible to receive funding from either SUFS or AAA, not both.

It is the responsibility of the parent(s)/guardian(s) to notify Cardinal Gibbons of any official decisions made concerning the Step Up for Students and Florida Private School Scholarship. Upon receiving a decision, please forward a copy of your denial or award letter to jorcutt@cghsfl.org, so that your state funds can be properly processed or so that your account can be re-evaluated for Cardinal Gibbons sponsored financial aid. SUFS, AAA and FACTS applications must be re-submitted each year.

Cardinal Gibbons Tuition Assistance
Our Tuition Assistance program allows Cardinal Gibbons High School to assist in funding your child’s Catholic education. Families seeking financial assistance directly funded by Cardinal Gibbons High School must register online with FACTS and submit a FACTS application after they have applied for state tuition funding. All FACTS registration fees, as well as all current tuition accounts, must be paid in full before any financial aid application will be considered. Funding is limited and available on a first-come basis. Students must re-submit FACTS applications each year to qualify for financial aid.

Please be advised that all students who receive tuition assistance directly from Cardinal Gibbons High School will be enrolled in a mandatory work-study program. For more information regarding the work-study program, please contact Tim Davis, at davis@cghsfl.org.
