Scholarships and Financial Assistance

For the 2019-20 school year, Hoban awarded more than $2.5 million in financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships and need-based tuition assistance from both the Hoban endowment and other sources. Hoban also offers students and families the opportunity to participate in the work-study program. Hoban is an approved provider of the EdChoice Scholarship program.

Hoban and the Diocese of Cleveland use the online FACTS system in two ways: to determine eligibility for need-based aid and to manage tuition payments. Families are asked to complete an online FACTS Assessment application to be considered for assistance and to manage tuition payments. Learn more about the FACTS application process. 

All grant and aid assistance must be applied for annually. Each year awards are based on updated information provided to FACTS by each family. Grant and aid assistance is awarded to families based on need and comes with the expectation that students who receive it work toward academic success. Due to a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance, priority is given to students who complete the online FACTS application by the December 1 deadline. 

Hoban also uses FACTS to collect and manage tuition payments. All families, regardless of how payments are handled, must sign up online for FACTS tuition management. Even those who pay tuition in its entirety in one payment are asked to utilize FACTS.

The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program managed by the Ohio Department of Education provides students assigned to underperforming public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools. The state pays a portion of the tuition, and the rest is made up in financial aid provided by Hoban.

Students who were assigned to an underperforming middle school or would be assigned to an underperforming high school may be eligible for this program. Students who already attend a private or parochial school as part of this program may continue in the program at Hoban. To be eligible, students must be accepted and registered for classes at Hoban and have completed the online FACTS application.

Work Study Program

Work-Study gives tuition credit for a student or parent's employment at Hoban during the summer and/or school year. On-campus jobs are available to all students regardless of financial need. Priority for Work-Study positions is given to students who receive need-based financial assistance. However, once those students have secured employment, the program is open to all other student applicants. Preference is given to underclassmen who are not eligible to receive a work permit. Applications for Work-Study are due by May 1.

Incoming ninth grade students receive application forms for Work-Study when they register for classes in March. Currently enrolled Hoban students can obtain a Work-Study application form from the central office at any time. This program is partially funded by a grant from the GAR Foundation.

A Parent Work Program is also available to help families pay their student's tuition. For information on the work programs for parents and students, contact Dave Arbogast.
