Here are answers to frequently asked financial questions.

Who qualifies for financial assistance & how much assistance can I expect?

Financial assistance is based upon your family’s income, number of dependents and any extenuating circumstances; therefore, no specific dollar amount automatically qualifies your family. Financial assistance awards vary depending on your family’s financial situation.

When will I be notified of how much assistance I have been granted?

Once you have completed the necessary financial assistance application and a third party provider has analyzed this information, the school office will inform you of any award you may be eligible to receive. This notification occurs soon after the school has the information necessary to determine at award.

What if I decide not to accept the financial assistance award —do I receive the registration fee back?

No. The registration fee is non-refundable.

What if my financial situation changes during the school year?

In some cases the family’s financial situation changes during the school year. In these cases, the family is encouraged to speak with the principal.
