Tuition Fees, Assistance and TRIP (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program) Information

Tuition Assistance (FAIR)

Tuition and Tuition Assistance
After careful discernment, the Walsh Jesuit Board of Directors have set tuition for the 2014-15 school year at $10,600.00. A $425.00 general registration fee applies to all students each year.


In order to ensure that a Walsh Jesuit education remains a possibility for students from a wide spectrum of economic backgrounds, our school's Tuition Assistance Program attempts to provide a Walsh Jesuit education to every deserving student, regardless of circumstance. The funds from the Tuition Assistance Program are generated by the school's endowment fund and donations restricted to financial aid by the benefactor. Tuition assistance is awarded based solely on need and not for academic or athletic achievement.


The Tuition Assistance Committee, comprised of administrators and guidance staff, determine tuition assistance grants based on the evaluation of financial need provided by FAIR (Financial Aid Independent Review). FAIR is a nationally recognized leader in financial need evaluation services for private schools. FAIR will process the financial aid applications and provide an objective evaluation of each family's financial need.  There are no income limits to applying for assistance. Each family's unique financial situation is considered when assessing need.


Beginning March 15, 2014, families may apply on-line at www.fairapp.com. To submit your application on-line, you will need the following information:
• School Code: 180
• School Password: WJHS180
• Valid email address
• Credit Card (Visa or MasterCard to complete payment processing)
• Copy of 2013 Federal Income Tax Return with all schedules and W-2's from the previous year


To begin the on-line application process, parents should go to www.fairapp.com and click on the "On-line Application" link. You can then create a user account using your email address and a password that you select. Once you have created a user account and signed in, you will be able to complete the FAIR application on-line.


If you do not have access to a computer, please contact the Business Office to obtain an application form, instructions, and mailing envelope.


Note: In the case of a divorced family, Walsh Jesuit requires both divorced parents to complete an application or provide court documentation stating one parent has no financial responsibility and no custodial rights. The school will not consider tuition assistance for a student until both parent's applications are complete. If you have remarried you will need to complete the application and include information about the stepparent's income, expenses, assets, and debt.
The deadline for tuition assistance applications for the Class of 2019 is November 30, 2014.

Applicants who meet this deadline will receive a letter in late December indicating if tuition assistance is awarded.
Families who currently have a student attending Walsh Jesuit High School and wish to apply for tuition assistance for an incoming 9th grade student should also complete the on-line FAIR application in November.

For the 2013-14 school year, Walsh Jesuit provided in excess 1.5 million in tuition assistance to approximately 30% of our students. Tuition assistance awards are grants, and therefore, do not require work or any type of re-payment.
If you have questions about the tuition assistance process or how to apply, please contact:

TRIP Info

March 11, 2014

Spring Break: Week of 4/14.  There is no TRIP delivery the week of Spring Break.  Any orders placed 4/10 would take two weeks to deliver and be received on April 24.

Last Order of the Year:  The last TRIP order placed would be 5/21 with the last delivery on 5/28.

Summer TRIP Schedule

TRIP is a gift card rebate program that allows your family to reduce tuition at Walsh Jesuit. A percentage of each gift card purchased through TRIP is credited to your family's TRIP account. Twice a year, TRIP sends a payment to Walsh Jesuit to reduce your tuition. Each gift card contains a percentage rebate indicated on the order form. Of that rebate, 75% is credited to your TRIP account. The remaining 25% is the fee to run the program. For example, if you order $100 worth of Donato's gift cards, your percentage rebate would be 10%. The amount of money that equals is $10.00. Of that $10.00, $7.50 is credited to your TRIP account. The other $2.50 makes up the fee to run the program.

If your family prefers, you may opt to participate in TRIP, but instead of crediting tuition you may donate your rebate as a tax deductible gift to the Walsh Jesuit Ignatian Fund in support need-based tuition assistance. Indicate on your order form you wish to make a donation.

TRIP at Walsh Jesuit is NOT mandatory. The program is optional and available to everyone, associated with Walsh Jesuit or not. Businesses may choose to purchase gift cards through TRIP at Walsh Jesuit and the rebate may be credited to a specific student or to the Ignatian Fund.  Click here for more information on TRIP.
