Financial Aid

Offering supplemental support to families

FACS offers families the opportunity to seek financial support to cover school tuition and fees by completing an application through a third party organization, School & Student Services. This online application is open for any family, and while it does not guarantee financial aid, it does begin the process for receiving from the additional, limited funds that are available. Get started by creating your family profile.

The Process

Financial aid applications must be submitted through the online partner platform, SSS, along with all of the required supplemental documentation. Families, new and returning, must submit their financial aid request application every year. Financial support is not guaranteed and rewarded based on varying information such as space availability, annual household income, and amount of aid available.

 

  1. Create your SSS profile.

  2. Submit financial aid application via SSS platform with all accompanying documentation, including 1040 tax return, w-2 and/or 1099 for current year.

  3. The FACS Business Office downloads your completed application, once all other requirements are met (see important details below).

  4. The FACS Finance Committee begins reviewing applications in March, starting with returning students first. 

  5. The Business Office notifies families of amount awarded upon application review. All families will receive communication regarding awarded aid before the start of the school year. 

Important Details

The deadline to submit financial aid requests is June 15, 2023 for returning families. No exceptions. Please note that there is a $60 application fee, payable to SSS. The FACS school code is 2673. New students must be accepted to FACS before processing the completed financial aid application. For students who are re-enrolling, all account balances must be current and the re-enrollment fee paid before financial aid applications can be processed.
