FCA desires to serve as many students as possible. It is our goal to offer a FCA education to all students, in Kindergarten to Grade 12, who desire it, and through our financial aid program we offer tuition assistance to students with financial needs. The funds from this program are available to all ALL families (both currently registered and new applicants). The Financial Aid Committee reviews each grant application and offers assistance to students based on the financial aid monies available.
In order for the committees to allocate resources wisely, and in a fair manner, we have enlisted a professional and independent financial assistance analysis company, Apple Financial Services. Apple Financial Services does not decide whether financial assistance will be awarded. Rather, it provides a need-based financial aid analysis which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute towards tuition. The confidential analysis is reviewed by the FCA's Financial Aid Committee, who then award finances based on the report and the available annual financial assistance fund budget.
NOTE: All information from Apple Financial Services is strictly confidential and only seen by the Financial Aid Committee.
In evaluating requests for financial assistance, FCA considers the following criteria:
To apply for Financial Aid, a completed enrollment application form must be on file in the Admission Office. Once the enrollment application is approved, parents may proceed with the online application.
