Garces Memorial is committed to offering every student in Kern County the opportunity to receive a Catholic education. For this reason, the Garces Financial Aid program was established. Garces Memorial High School provides financial assistance to those families who demonstrate financial need. If you currently receive financial aid at Garces, you must reapply. Scroll down to How to Apply.
All families who feel they may qualify for need-based financial aid are encouraged to complete the application . The size of the financial aid award will depend on the level of demonstrated need. No student will receive the full amount of tuition in financial aid.
Any family that is in need of tuition assistance must apply no later than February 19, 2022. No individual will be considered for financial aid unless they have completed and submitted all forms and the required paperwork. All funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis depending on availability and need. Information and the necessary forms for tuition assistance are available below. A $35 processing fee is required by FACTS Grant & Aid to generate a completed application.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
Financial Aid must be submitted no later than February 19, 2022 for consideration by the committee. Late applications will only be considered if there are funds available. Please note that incomplete applications and missing documents will result in a delay in processing by FACTS Grant & Aid which may affect the ability of the committee to award funds.
