Financials

Tuition & Fees

Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade have the use of Windows devices, while students in grades sixth through twelve utilize our “Bring Your Own Device” program which includes software licensing fees for specific courses and access to online research websites through our Media Center. Textbooks, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), uniforms, lunch, and class field studies are not included with tuition.

Tuition Assistance

We realize that some families do not have the necessary funds to pay the full amount of tuition at Providence School. We offer tuition assistance on a limited basis to students in grades K-12 with demonstrated need. Providence Preschool does not award tuition assistance but does participate in the VPK program for 4-year-old children. Families must apply annually for financial assistance by completing a Financial Needs Assessment through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment website and must apply for the Step Up For Students scholarship (FTC or FES-EO.)

In order to be considered for tuition assistance, your online student application must be submitted with the required documentation and application fee paid before you proceed with the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Once you receive your acceptance email from admissions, you can apply for financial assistance. All families must apply for financial assistance each academic year. Returning families will have priority.

Providence School will not be able to meet 100% of the established need for each applicant, and often, the number of qualified applicants exceeds the tuition assistance resources of the school. Therefore, there is no guarantee that every qualified applicant will receive tuition assistance.

Financial Need Assessment

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will review income and expenses, along with assets and liabilities of both parents and/or responsible parties. Providence School is approved for the Family Empowerment Scholarship – Educational Options and Family Empowerment Scholarship – Unique Abilities that are offered through Step Up For Students. We do not accept the Hope Scholarship. Academic, merit, or athletic scholarships are not offered.
