Tuition & Financial Assistance

The Prout School and the Diocese of Providence want to make a Catholic education affordable by allocating funds for need-based tuition assistance. Awards are based on the applicant's ability to pay tuition as determined by the information submitted on the application form to the FACTS Management Company.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, 38% of our students received some financial assistance. All awards are based on a family's financial need and the availability of financial aid resources. Please refer to the instructions below for applying for financial aid. The Prout School and the Diocese of Providence utilize FACTS, a national tuition and financial assessment company, to allocate funds and determine the amount of aid to be awarded to a student.

The Prout School is pleased to announce that, beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year, we will offer current 8th grade students from our Catholic partner schools a $1,500.00 tuition grant for The Prout School. This Crusader Grant will be offered to students attending Prout after graduating from a Catholic elementary school in recognition of their Catholic preparation. This grant will follow students for all four years as long as they remain a student in good standing.         

Financial Assistance for New Students

The Prout School and the Diocese of Providence offer tuition assistance grants to eligible families. APPLICATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED BY FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2020. The application process for the 2020-2021 school year is now open. You may use your 2018 financial information and update the information on your account once you have completed your 2019 tax returns.  

If you qualify for aid, your financial aid award will be included in your acceptance letter. Acceptance letters are mailed on January 30, 2020.
