Finding the right school is an investment in your child’s future. While we are a tuition-based school, we aim to create a community that is socioeconomically diverse. Our school offers need-based grants to families on a yearly basis. Arbor’s financial assistance program is funded by the fundraising efforts of our parent body.
Financial assistance is available to current families and transfers to the Elementary and Adolescent levels. Financial assistance is also available to Primary level students beginning at age 5.
Every family receiving assistance is asked to pay some portion of the tuition; there are no awards for 100% of tuition. Financial assistance is not automatically renewed. Families who receive financial assistance must reapply each year.
To be eligible for consideration for financial assistance, applicants must complete the on-line process through Financial Aid and School Tuition (FAST). Based on the financial information provided on the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and other required forms and tax returns, FAST calculates and verifies the amount the family is able to contribute to tuition. Late or incomplete applications for financial assistance cannot be processed.
The deadline for financial assistance is February 20.
(Current families, you can find more detailed information on Arbor’s financial assistance program starting on page 90 of the Parent Handbook.)
