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 2016-2017 academic year, 35% 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.
