There is so much value in the Nerinx education. I know it prepared my daughter in terms of academics, but it also prepared her for life. Nerinx provides a worldview you just don't find at other Catholic schools. Students are exposed to so many life-changing topics—not just in the classroom from teachers and their peers, but through the service program. You see the world at Nerinx. My daughter is so far ahead of her peers in terms of working with and respecting people who might have differing opinions than she does. She learned incredibly valuable tools. I'd send her to Nerinx again without a doubt.

More than 40% of Nerinx students receive financial assistance in the form of need-based aid, merit scholarships, and diversity awards. Award amounts vary, with an average award of $4700. 


Students with outstanding scores on 8th grade nationally-normed standardized tests (IOWA or ASPIRE*) qualify for our Merit Scholarships as well as placement in the House of Studies Honors Program. Scholarships are automatically awarded at the time of admission. 


As a Catholic high school founded by the Sisters of Loretto in 1924, Nerinx Hall continues to embrace the Loretto belief that diversity enriches. The Diversity Award varies in amount and is a monetary award renewable for four years. There is an additional application for the Diversity Award that can be completed with the Admissions Application. Questions about the Diversity Award can be directed to diversityaward@nerinxhs.org
