Applying for Tuition Assistance
Garden Street Academy has long expressed its commitment to admitting and enrolling students who are the best match with our academic program. Tuition assistance is an option and is determined by merit, need and availability of funds. Our formula considers income, assets and expenses of both the student and the parents.The Admissions Committee uses all information to determine what a family might reasonably be able to contribute toward educational expenses. The Admissions Committee cannot grant tuition assistance award unless all requested documentation is submitted with a completed application.
How do I apply?
In order to be considered for tuition assistance, families must submit copies to FACTS (https://online.factsmgt.com/aid) of their current tax forms with all schedules and W-2s attached. Draft initially acceptable for current year until official copy available. The supplemental list of assets is to include items such as land, cars, boats, second or more houses. Please ensure list clearly addresses any assets or income not listed elsewhere in the tuition assistance packet.
Will applying for Tuition Assistance affect my child’s chances for admission?
No. The Admissions Committee makes decisions without regard to family financial circumstances. The school awards available funds to families who qualify for assistance. On occasion, family need is greater than the school’s resources, and some students may be placed on a waiting list until funds become available.
Will my child’s Tuition Assistance award change from year to year?
Awards are made on a year-to-year basis. Families must re-apply annually if continued tuition assistance is sought.
