Dear St. Gabriel Families,

Financial Aid 2018 – 2019:

Families WHO completed their online FACTS Grant & Aid application will be under review for consideration for financial assistance for the 2018 – 2019 school year.

Consideration will ONLY be given to families who have completed the FACTS Grant & Aid Application. https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/41XW4
Please note that submitting an application for financial assistance does not automatically translates to a financial aid award. Financial assistance is based on funds availability, family needs as well as a family’s contribution to service above and beyond what is required.
If you have questions about the financial aid process, please feel free to contact me at adamss@stgabrielchicago.com
We are willing to work with any family situation that arises.

Sincerely,
Mr. Adams
