Financial Aid

Applying for Aid

Loyola Blakefield uses Facts Grant and Aid Assessment (FACTS) to manage the financial aid process. FACTS helps Loyola assess a family’s ability to pay school costs and make objective and fair financial aid decisions. Based on the results of the financial aid application, FACTS estimates the amount a family can contribute to tuition and fees. Loyola uses this estimate, as well as the school’s budget and financial aid policies, as a starting point for financial aid awards.

Financial Aid applications for the 2024–2025 school year are due by January 2, 2025. Financial Aid Awards are communicated with admissions decisions in February. Please visit the FACTS website to begin your application.
