Financial Aid & Tuition Adjustment

The Financial Aid web page has information about Tuition Adjustment Policies.

To increase flexibility of tuition structure, the Tuition Adjustment Committee evaluates tuition adjustment applications and decides upon individual tuition agreements. The Board of Trustees sets the total amount available for tuition adjustment. Applications remain confidential and are viewed only by the Tuition Adjustment Committee. The Committee informs the families of its decision and the adjusted tuition amount is reflected on your contract. Tuition Adjustment is available to 5-day Early Childhood students and students in grades 1—12.

The deadline for Tuition Adjustment applications for returning families is January 18th, 2017.

Only new family Tuition Adjustment applications will be accepted after this deadline.
