Scholarships and Grants

Applications are available for various Scholarships and Grants.

List of 4 items.

  • Academic Scholarships

    Don Bosco Prep offers generous academic scholarships to incoming freshman students. Traditionally, a student must take the Cooperative Entrance Examination (HSPT) and choose Don Bosco Prep as one of his choices. For the Class of 2025, we will be providing a new scholarship assessment to be announced in October 2020.

    All academic awards are renewable each year as long as the student is able to maintain an unweighted average of 93 in each class and an exemplary discipline record while at Don Bosco Prep. Any student who fails to adhere to these criteria may forfeit his scholarship for the remainder of his time at Don Bosco Prep.  

    Academic scholarships are awarded in the acceptance packets on January 15, 2021. Academic scholarship amounts are determined annually based on the fiscal budget and the number of eligible applicants.
  • Alumni Scholarships

    Over the years our alumni and benefactors have generously given back to their alma mater in an effort to provide financial support to students in need and ensure that future Ironmen benefit from the unique experiences Don Bosco Prep has to offer. New scholarships are established annually as alumni and benefactors approach the school to offer their support. Scholarships are awarded based upon the criteria set forth by the donor at the time the scholarship is established. Students are automatically reviewed for these alumni scholarships based on biographical and financial information submitted during the registration process.
  • Brother's Grant

    Don Bosco Prep offers a tuition reduction in the form of the Brother’s Grant for families who have 2 or more sons attending at the same time. The Brother’s Grant credits $500 to the account of one sibling at Don Bosco Prep. If there are 3 or more siblings attending Don Bosco Prep at one time, each sibling receives a $500 reduction in tuition.
  • SFIC (Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children)

    The SFIC is a tuition assistance program for needy inner-city children who aspire to attend a private Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of Newark or the Diocese of Paterson. In order to be reviewed for this scholarship, you must apply starting October 1st, 2019. Please be advised that the deadline for this scholarship is December 31st, 2019.
