FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM 2020-21
The Financial Aid process is now underway at Mercy High School. Families must apply for Financial Aid each new school year. Tuition Assistance is awarded on the basis of financial need as determined by the successful completion of a FACTS Management Grant and Aid Assessment application . The application may be found at https://online.factsmgt.com .  

In order to be considered for financial aid for the 2020-21 school year, you must complete and submit the required application by the April 30, 2020 deadline. There is a $30 online application fee. Your FACTS online application must show “Complete” in the FACTS system in order to be considered for any type of financial aid. In addition to filling out the on line FACTS Management, application, an essay and cover sheet must be submitted to Mercy High School, Office of the President. 

Please note, if you have received any type of financial aid from Mercy High School in the past, you must reapply each year in order to be considered for renewal. Receiving an award in previous years does not guarantee an award for the upcoming year. Applications submitted after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list only if marked "Complete" in the FACTS system and when funds become available.

The Archdiocese of Detroit will award tuition assistance grants again this year to Catholic families who qualify. See the Archdiocese web page at  https://www.detroitcatholicschools.org/tuition-assistance-scholarships  for applications and details.
