Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for children enrolled in grades PS–12. Every family who receives financial aid is expected to fulfill a four-hour School service commitment each month of the academic year.

This year, financial aid applications will be processed by Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc.  (FAIR) and reviewed by the Financial Aid committee of the School. Financial aid is allocated based on completed applications received at FAIR by April 15, 2004. Financial aid forms cannot be processed if incomplete.

To Apply for Financial Aid
Complete the enclosed Financial Aid Application Form and mail along with your 2002 IRS Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ and the processing fee to FAIR, PO Box 484, Rosemount, MN 55068.

A copy of your 2003 federal income tax return must accompany this application before it can be considered.

All financial aid applications must be submitted by the parent who claims the child as a dependent.
