The financial needs of our families exceed our financial aid resources. Therefore, awards do not eliminate tuition payments for a family. There are very few exceptions to this rule, and recipients are usually in a very narrow category designated by the donor of the financial aid funds. 

Families wishing to be considered for financial assistance based on need must complete the FAIR Application online.

  • School code for the online application is 700
  • Password is cea700
  • Seton School code is 703endowment

Applicants must file the FAIR/CEA application as well as the Seton Scholarship Application which is due June 30th. Scholarship recipients are notified as scholarships become available. Non-recipients are not notified. General Endowment Scholarships are available in addition to the listed scholarships. All scholarships are dependent on funding.
