How Financial Aid Works

To ensure fairness, Christopher Columbus High School utilizes Smart Aid to evaluate financial aid applications. Once applications and other materials are submitted, the Financial Aid Committee reviews and determines how much assistance will be awarded to a family. Awards are made based upon the family’s financial need and is given by the Marist Brothers of Christopher Columbus High School. 

You may apply for financial aid once your son has been accepted and ENROLLED at Christopher Columbus High School. No award letter is sent unless both have been satisfied.
