In an effort to secure and maintain an economically diverse student population, the BSM Board of Directors established a tuition assistance program allowing students the opportunity to attend BSM through tuition assistance grants. Roughly 19% of the student body currently receives assistance. More than $1.4 million in assistance was awarded for the 2015-2016 school year, with an average award of $6,345.
All tuition assistance applicants must complete a Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) application. TADS is used by all Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to determine a family's tuition need. TADS applications can be filled online or can be printed and mailed to you from TADS. Completing your TADS application online will expedite the process.
Submitting TADS applications after the deadline may affect a student’s financial award, as we have limited funding. Funding cannot be allocated to TADS applicants unless the student has been granted admission to Benilde-St. Margaret's. TADS may be filed prior to the admission decision, but notification of potential tuition assistance qualification will not be sent until after a student is admitted.
For general information on the BSM tuition assistance program, please contact Shané Sisco, Student Tuition and Financial Aid Specialist, at 952-927-4176, ext. 2482 or email. You may contact TADS for assistance completing the application or to check your application status. TADS does not have award information.
*Tuition assistance staff will be available during the school's Open Houses.
The Parent Association annually awards $2,000 scholarships to the top four incoming 9th grade students who place highest on the CogAT (Cognitive Abilities) placement test given in January. Each student receives $1,000 during the freshman year and an additional $1,000 during the sophomore year. No application is required.
