Tuition and Financial Aid
Families who cannot afford to pay 100% tuition are encouraged to apply for financial assistance. The School’s goal is to have 15% of the total of our annual tuition available for financial aid grants. The funds for financial assistance are provided through donations and endowment earnings.
A letter with detailed application instructions for financial aid assistance is available upon request from the business office beginning mid-December 2011. Charles Armstrong School uses an outside vendor (Student and School Services – SSS affiliated with the National Association of Independent Schools) for the initial analysis of a family’s financial need. Additional analysis is completed by the school business office before grants are awarded under the direction and approval of a financial aid committee. All information provided during the application and review process is held in the strictest confidence.
Families who received a grant for the current year have first priority by Board policy for funds again the upcoming year if they continue to demonstrate financial need. Second priority is given to families currently attending CAS who previously did not receive financial assistance or did not apply. Third priority is for new students entering CAS.
To obtain information on the application process, request the letter which details application instructions, or an SSS packet (if not submitting your information on-line), please email Cindy Rosinski, Business Office Associate, email@example.com.
Please note that we encourage you to handle as much of the process as possible by email so that we can respond to your requests efficiently.
