St. Mary Catholic Central High School awards financial assistance to students; all forms of financial aid are need-based. At present, there are memorial grants, endowments, and funds from our annual Auction that generate an annual interest income and funds. This money is awarded to qualifying students applying for financial assistance. The financial aid committee administers the money generated by these grants based upon the requirements specified by the donor.
Total financial aid to all qualifying students for the current school year is over $1,100,000. This figure includes funds from the Archdiocese of Detroit, SMCC Endowments & Trusts, and others. Over 60% of all students attending SMCC benefit from our financial assistance programs.
The process of seeking financial assistance begins with submitting a completed FACTS Management financial aid application. This form and the $30 processing fee was due by December each year. Notifications of SMCC financial aid grants were mailed prior to registration or re-registration.
