To receive instructions on how to complete a Smart Aid application for financial aid, all prospective families must first submit an application for admissions. In that process, if you select “Yes” to receive information, instructions will be sent to you as soon as applications are being accepted. After a Smart Aid application is submitted, the Smart Aid team will review the application and uploaded documents and provide the Damien team with a recommendation to review.
