In-House Tuition Assistance

Fenwick High School has a tuition assistance program in order to assist families with the cost of tuition. Families must apply each year for tuition assistance. This year, Fenwick awarded $2.2 million in need-based assistance.

Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

The Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program was passed by the State of IL in late August, 2017. Click below for more information about the program. We will pass along updated information, as the Illinois Department of Revenue issues further guidelines. Below is information for the Empower and Big Shoulders SGOs. We recommend you apply to both as close to the time that the application opens. If you have questions please contact tuitionassistance@fenwickfriars.com.

Scholarship Opportunities

In addition to Fenwick’s tuition assistance, many of our students receive awards from various groups and organizations. These groups generally have similar requirements (application, tax return information, asset and housing information) and some may have additional requirements for academic achievement. Please feel free to call the listed agencies for more information. If you are interested in applying to one of these organizations be aware that most have very strict deadlines. Contact them to obtain further information.

  • Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO)

    If your child receives a scholarship through the Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), your Fenwick award will be adjusted to reflect that award. If the SGO award is higher, you will not receive additional aid from Fenwick. If the Fenwick award is higher, we will award the difference to match the Fenwick award.
