Tuition assistance is managed through FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition)
About Tuition Assistance
The school provides tuition assistance to qualifying families in need of financial support as budgets allow for the academic year. The school uses Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), an online service, to calculate the level of need based upon applications. FAST considers a number of factors and requires supporting documentation to determine need.
FAST does not decide whether tuition assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential.
The Board of Directors makes recommendations based on next year’s budget and on the information presented by the Executive Director received through FAST. Upon approval by the Board of Directors, offers of tuition assistance for the academic year are then sent to families. The Board of Directors oversees all funds and makes assistance awards based on demonstrated need from completed applications. The Executive Director alone will know the identity of the applicants and full confidentiality will be maintained at all times during the application and award process. However, any award authorized by the Board will need to be disclosed to the school’s accountant and CPA firm.
- Tuition assistance for the Summer Program is available subject to availability of funds. Please contact the Executive Director for more information.
- Any family interested in enrolling their child can submit a FAST application and determine what level of assistance they are eligible to receive. However, awards will only be given after a family has secured a spot in the school.
- Thoroughly completed applications for assistance must be submitted to FAST in accordance with provided deadlines. Applications for assistance received after the application deadline has passed will be reviewed and considered for any remaining funds.
- It is necessary to reapply for tuition assistance each academic year. If you are a current recipient, it will not be assumed that you will need or receive assistance in subsequent academic years.
