Unfortunately, our ability to offer financial aid at the beginning of our 2020-21 school year is very limited. Our financial aid assistance has been halved due to the restriction on class sizes and reduction in overall revenue due to the pandemic.

Financial aid applications for ‘in-person’ classes are available now. We are unable to offer financial aid for our online classes. The deadline for all applications is August 19.

All applications will be considered at one time by a Scholarship Committee after the deadline closes. Awards will be assessed based on criteria, including need, tenure, merit, gender, and racial identity. Applicants will be notified by August 21.

Applications are a two-step process. Firstly, tell us you intend to apply for financial aid. Email Alyx Johnson to declare your intent. This will help us monitor demand for classes. Secondly, complete your FAST Application. Before starting your application, gather your most recent federal and state tax returns, as these documents are a required part of the application process.

We are holding limited spaces in our classes to accommodate financial aid applicants. Please understand we are doing our best to accommodate all our passionate and talented students within the confines of this difficult situation. We will continue to monitor classes and our financial situation, adjusting and adding spaces as we are able.

We cannot apply financial assistance to your account after your child is registered so please wait until our Scholarship Committee has reviewed applications prior to registering.
