Thank you for your interest in the 2020-21 Merit Scholarship and Tuition Assistance program.
As we evaluate all applicants, please keep in mind that we are doing our best to help all families. Offering a superior high school STEM education at an affordable price is both our goal and a key part of our Salesian mission.
The cost of living in California has put a strain on many families. We understand sending your son to Bosco Tech is a wise decision, significant sacrifice, and major investment in your son’s future. As a non-profit organization, Bosco Tech must also adjust to rising operational costs. Unfortunately, the need for tuition assistance at Bosco Tech has increased over 35% over the last two years.
Sustaining our financial resources for future growth is critical, therefore, we will continue to be strategic and precise in the distribution of merit and need-based tuition. The school distributed over $1.2 million in 2019-20 and we anticipate the same for 2020-21.
Merit Scholarship are awarded to Bosco Tech students at the time of admission based on his academic grade point average (GPA).
Enrolled students with academic GPAs of 3.5 or better are awarded:
$750 (annually, based on eligibility–students must reapply each year)
Enrolled students with academic GPAs of 3.0-3.49 are awarded:
$250 (annually, based on eligibility–students must reapply each year)
Summer Scholar Grant (Freshman Year Tuition Only):
Students who participated in the Bosco Tech Scholar program (summer entering 8th grade year) are eligible for a one-time grant to be used toward freshman year tuition at Bosco Tech. This grant cannot be applied towards any fees.
Please note, that all merit scholarships are based on availability; once funds have been exhausted, awards and/or scholarships will not be granted. It is advised for new students to apply during the Early Admissions deadline and for returning students, to submit enrollment paperwork by the deadline.
