Tuition Assistance Overview
Jeremiah School offers a tuition assistance program to families enrolling in our school who demonstrate and qualify for need. The level of need is determined by a third party organization FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition).
Tuition assistance awards, and the amount of the awards, vary from year to year. The amount of assistance awarded to families is based on the family’s qualifications, and is allocated from available tuition assistance funds. The maximum award will be 20% of tuition, which for 2021/22 means $2,000.
Tuition assistance will be prioritized for those that do not receive any other type of official grant/assistance towards tuition.
The process is as follows:
- Annually, the Board of Directors establishes a funding goal for the tuition assistance program.
- The need is published, and the school works with donors and through fundraising events (such as the May Match and DodgeBrawl) to raise the funds to reach the goal.
- Assistance is then awarded based on the funds actually raised during the prior school year.
For the 2021/22 school year, this will be very limited due to the effect COVID-19 restrictions had on the school’s ability to hold events, and therefore raise money.
There are certain scholarships which are set up by external donors. The school will offer these to families based on the criteria of the scholarship, and the need of individual families. Any scholarships offered are only valid for one year
All financial information submitted is confidential. Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted each year for which tuition assistance is requested, and required tax documents MUST be provided to hold any award initially calculated. It is imperative that interested families apply by the May 31, 2021 deadline. Families will be notified of tuition assistance awards by June 30, 2021.
Any applications received after May 31, 2021 will not be considered.
