Financial Aid

An important part of the mission of Holy Names Academy is to serve students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.  For the 2020-2021 school year, 39.5% of enrolled students receive some level of need-based aid.

Financial aid is awarded both directly from Holy Names Academy and via the Academy from the Fulcrum Foundation of the Archdiocese of Seattle.  Financial aid may include a Holy Names Academy grant, an endowed scholarship, a student work-study assignment, or a Fulcrum Foundation grant. 134 named endowments and scholarships directly support student financial aid, which in 2020-2021 helped underwrite the educations of 121 students. 

The financial aid application process will begin in November 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year. The application deadline for financial aid is December 31, 2021. Financial aid applications must be completed each year.

Incoming 9th-grade students may anticipate confirmation of financial-aid awards in mid-February.  Returning students may anticipate confirmation of financial-aid awards prior to the start of tuition payments for the next academic year.

Academic Scholarships

Holy Names Academy seeks to recognize young women who are academically outstanding. Awards of scholarships -- either one-time or renewable -- are based on academic merit, as shown by the student’s grades, her scores on the HNA Scholarship/ Placement Exam, teacher evaluation, school report, and application to HNA. No separate application for a scholarship is required.

SAFE Fund (Student Aid for Education Fund)

In addition to financial aid for tuition, Holy Names Academy provides funds to assist students with non-tuition needs, such as classroom supplies or school activities. The majority of these funds are generated by the faculty and staff contributions to HNA’s Annual Giving Program, as well as a modest grant from the InvestED Foundation. The criterion for use is an established financial need that cannot be met by the student, her family, or any other support program. Students who request SAFE funds must have a financial aid application on file in the Business Office. To request funds, please call or email Mrs. Kim Dawson, Vice Principal of Student Life, at (206) 720-7815 or
