Pope John Paul II High School annually awards tuition assistance to families who show financial need through an application process. Scholarships and Financial Aid are divided into three categories:
This aid is directed to tuition only and does not cover fees and other expenses. While part of this amount is awarded as four year academic scholarships to outstanding performers on the scholarship exam, by far the larger part of tuition assistance goes to students as need based grants.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia/BLOCS & Pope John Paul II High School for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by December 31st for early financial aid decisions!
Aid for the 2019-2020 school year will be processed by FACTS Grant and Aid. All need-based awards will be contingent on reception of the most recent tax return.

8th Grade Scholarship Test
Pope John Paul II High School's Eighth Grade Scholarship Test is on Saturday, October 27 from 9:00 a.m. until noon. If your child is unable to take the test on October 27, there is a make-up test date which will take place after school on Monday, October 29 from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
The PJP scholarship test is an optional test; it is not a placement or entrance test. Students who receive the highest scores on the PJP scholarship test will be invited back in December to interview for potential scholarship opportunities.
PJP offered the Class of 2022 a record of over $100,000 in academic scholarships as a result of the scholarship test. Close to half a million dollars in scholarships, grants, and financial aid were awarded to PJP students for the 2018-2019 school year.
There is a $50 fee to take the Scholarship Test, and the test format is the HSPT from the Scholastic Testing Service.
Students are asked to bring two #2 pencils; calculators are not permitted. Each student may bring a drink and a snack, and they are invited to dress comfortably. Thank you!
If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Dianne Manza at 484-975-6500 x3010.
