Scholarships & Financial Aid
A Little Flower education is affordable and within your reach!
Many people don’t believe a private Catholic education is financially attainable for their daughters. Little Flower takes great pride in its legacy of providing the most generous financial aid of all the Diocesan High Schools. Thanks to the abundant generosity of our loyal alumnae and other Little Flower partners, a Little Flower education can be an affordable option.
