Nashua Catholic uses the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Program to help evaluate a family’s ability to contribute toward their child’s education. With the help of FACTS, Nashua Catholic makes the fairest possible determination regarding the level of assistance it can offer. The process involves balancing individual need, the number of families applying and the total available aid.
You may apply online here.

FACTS charges $30 to complete the aid application.
529 Tuition Savings Plans
Effective January 1, 2018, expenses covered by 529 accounts (historically known as “college” savings accounts/plans) have been expanded to include elementary and secondary school tuition. People may now use up to $10,000, each calendar year, from a 529 account for K-12 tuition (public, private, or religious).
If you are not familiar with 529 plans, investment earnings in a 529 plan are not subject to federal capital gains tax and generally not taxed by state governments when used for qualified education expenses. Thus becoming a great tax-advantaged way for families to save for education expenses for their children (or even grandchildren).

NEO (Network for Educational Opportunities)
NEO is for incoming public school students. It is accepted by Nashua Catholic.
Network for Educational Opportunities creates educational scholarships to assist families who wish to move their children from public schools into private schools. With the recent decision of the Supreme Court, NEO can now offer parents the option of sending their children to religion-based private schools such as Nashua Catholic.
Please understand: this financial assistance is not determined or distributed by Nashua Catholic and it is not for assisting students already attending our school. It is to enable parents who wish to move their children from public schools to private schools to receive financial assistance in addition to whatever the school might be able to offer. Once a child receiving financial aid from NEO has enrolled in Nashua Catholic, NEO is committed to providing financial assistance to the family to enable the child to stay at Nashua Catholic.
Information about NEO can be found at www.networkforeducation.org.
NH Scholarship Fund
The NH scholarship Fund provides scholarships for New Hampshire students who are struggling in their current public school to allow them to attend a private school that is a better fit for them and their learning needs. They also provide scholarships for homeschooling expenses. The deadline to apply for the 2018-2019 school year is June 1, 2018.
