In order to give you an accurate aid award for the 2020-2021 school year,  each family must complete the FACTS application for financial aid no later than December 31, 2019. The FACTS application only requires your 2018 tax return.  Please know that the December 31st deadline for FACTS applications is important as we allot need-based funds from a limited resource. We try our best to allocate the maximum amount available among all applicants. If your application is late, we may not have funds available.

Re-enrollment for all eligible students for 2020-2021 will open on Tuesday, January 7th. The re-enrollment deposit is $1000, and there is a prompt pay discount of $300 for families who re-enroll by February 1st and $100 for those who complete re-enrollment by March 1st. 

Enrollments after April 1st may result in the forfeit of scholarships and aid awards, so please be mindful of the March 1st deadline.
