Tom Fabietti Scholarship
The Tom Fabietti Scholarship Foundation was established as a tribute to Tom Fabietti, a member of the Prep Brotherhood who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 1994.
Tom was a proud 1986 graduate who felt strongly about the value of his Prep education. Because of his wish for more young men to be given the opportunity to attend our school, the mission of the Tom Fabietti Scholarship Foundation is to provide scholarships to young men who aspire to continue their education at St. Augustine Prep.
The work of the foundation has grown significantly. Since 1994, over $1.2 million in merit grants has been awarded to over 100 applicants. To obtain an application for this scholarship, visit tomfabiettifoundation.org.
Tuition Assistance Guidelines and Policies
St. Augustine Prep awards limited tuition assistance on the basis of financial need. The amount of tuition assistance granted is determined by the Tuition Assistance Committee and is based on the total funds available from the institution, the total number of applicants, and the demonstrated financial need of each family as indicated by TADS. It is important to note that the Admissions Committee of St. Augustine Preparatory School makes no distinction between applicants who request tuition assistance and those who do not. Admission to St. Augustine Preparatory is an entirely separate process from the Tuition Assistance Program.
Unlike other private institutions where financial aid is funded by large endowments, St. Augustine Prep depends on the annual support and generosity of its benefactors, alumni, and internal community. While it is the Prep’s belief that the primary responsibility for tuition rests with each family, the Prep recognizes the distinctness of each situation and tailors grants to meet the needs of each qualified family.
St. Augustine Preparatory School seeks social, economic, cultural, and ethnic diversity in its student body. For this reason, young men who possess unique talents and who have demonstrated need may be considered for a tuition assistance grant. The repayment of a grant is not required, but the institution’s expectations are that the student will have a stellar discipline record, have an excellent academic record, and have the recommendation of the faculty and staff in order to maintain the grant. Tuition assistance will not be awarded to students with outstanding tuition payments until agreements have been made with the St. Augustine Prep’s Business Office. Families of enrolled students must reapply for tuition assistance each year.
In order to be considered for tuition assistance, families must complete the TADS form and meet the specific deadlines outlined below. All applications must be complete in order to be considered for tuition assistance. The Prep is ready to assist families in whatever way possible regarding the Tuition Assistance Program. Please feel free to contact the Office of Enrollment Management with any questions or concerns at 856-697-2600 ext. 149.
