Because we believe that enrollment should not be limited to those who can pay full tuition, Providence School strives to offer tuition assistance to students in grades K-12 whose families can provide documentation of need. The tuition assistance program helps to achieve social and economic diversity within our school community. Consideration for financial assistance will be given to families of current students before it is awarded to new families. Providence School may not be able to meet 100% of 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.
Tuition assistance is offered as a reduction of full tuition, which is determined through an analysis of family financial need. This analysis is completed through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, a third party company which reviews income and expenses, along with assets and liabilities of both parents and/or responsible parties. Academic merit or athletic scholarships are not offered. We do not accept the McKay Scholarship; however, we do accept the Step Up For Students (SUFS) scholarship, which is based on income. We encourage families to investigate the Step Up for Students scholarship to find out if they qualify.
How to Apply
The tuition assistance application is completed online by clicking on the FACTS icon. FACTS charges a $30 application fee that is payable by credit card. Late applicants may be considered if funds are available. Tuition assistance awards will be made on a “first come, first served” basis until the fund is exhausted. Returning families will have priority until April 1.
In order to be considered for tuition assistance for new families, your online student application must be submitted with the required documentation and application fee paid before you proceed with the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Thank you!
The financial assistance committee will be meeting to assess the completed applications submitted through FACTS. Families will be notified by the 15th of April for the first round of awards. The balance of awards will be made on a rolling basis as applications are approved.
