Tuition and Fees

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for families who demonstrate financial need by submitting an application to FACTS Grant & Aid.  Over 25% of our students receive financial aid.  Bishop Gorman does not offer academic or athletic scholarships.  

Financial aid applications will be made under the separate annual application process in FACTS Grant & Aid.  The priority deadline for first round financial aid awards is February 28, 2022.  Applicants must have completed their online FACTS financial aid application and have provided all required information to FACTS by that date for priority consideration. 

New families may begin the financial aid process before the official notification of their student's acceptance. However, only students who have been accepted to Bishop Gorman will hear back from the Financial Aid Committee on their potential award.

Admission Criteria

Bishop Gorman is a Catholic Christian school faithful to the Sacred Scripture (the Bible), the Catholic Christian tradition, and the authentic Magisterial teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. While the school welcomes students of all religious traditions, the student and the parents/guardians must respect our Catholic Identity.

Bishop Gorman Catholic School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, or national origin.  In addition, the school does not discriminate against students on the basis of disability in compliance with section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 USC Section 794) in the admission of students, employment of personnel, administration of educational policies, athletics, or other school programs.  

Bishop Gorman may use the following criteria in making admissions decisions:

  • Current school record

  • Standardized testing

  • Student's academic potential

  • Student's discipline record

  • High School Placement Test (HSPT) or other placement test

All students new to Bishop Gorman or seeking re-admission will be admitted on academic and disciplinary probation for one full semester. Any serious violation of the academic or discipline codes will be subject to a review by the school administration; the student may subsequently receive an extension of the probation or dismissal.

God is the cornerstone to everything here at Bishop Gorman.

I have told several people that I got the equivalent of a college education at Gorman versus what I have seen from today's college graduates. Thank you, Mom and Dad!
