2015-2016 Processing Year; 2016-2017 Academic Year
Financial aid at Aspen Academy is awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. This is determined by factors such as income, number of children, age of parents, unusual medical expenses, taxes, assets, liabilities, and other tuition-based schools. Financial aid is treated as a gift from the school to the receiving family; there are no repayment requirements. Applying for financial aid does not affect the chances for admission. Financial Aid is offered to students in Kindergarten-8th grade.
How Is My Need Determined?
All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee, which makes award determinations based on next year's financial aid budget. Keep in mind that the recommendations from FAST serve as guidelines for financial aid decisions. Many new and returning students qualify for financial aid, therefore Aspen Academy may not be able to offer assistance to all families, nor can it provide the full demonstrated need in all cases.
Financial aid amounts vary, with a maximum award of 50%. Financial aid awards are not guaranteed to remain the same year to year; in fact, they will change as financial circumstances change. A new financial aid application must be submitted every year. The student must remain in good academic and disciplinary standing in order to qualify for financial aid.
