St. Ignatius of Loyola School works with families who are unable to pay full tuition, awarding over $180,000 in aid this year. Scholarships are granted based on need and merit. To learn more about our financial aid program, contact Maryellen Basurto, Office Manager 323-255-6456.
We provide several forms of tuition assistance through the generosity of CEF, Vision of Hope, and various foundations & individual donors.
- Catholic Education Foundation is an independent charitable trust established by the archdiocese of Los Angeles whose mission is to provide tuition assistance to the most financially deserving students attending Catholic elementary and high schools within the archdiocese of L.A.
- The Vision of Hope endowment was established by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose. The Dominican Sisters Vision of Hope operates solely to provide quality, affordable Catholic education for the children of inner-city elementary schools and to ensure a vibrant future for the school and community.
- Foundations such as Doheny, Green, and Shea provide grant money for our families when possible, as do individual donors.
Applications are available during the winter/spring for the upcoming school year. Please inquire in the school office for specific information.
