What is Financial Assistance?

Financial Assistance funds are grants that help to reduce the cost of tuition for families that qualify through the need-based program.

How is Financial Assistance determined?

Saint Basil Academy uses the services of FAST/ISM (Financial Assistance School Tuition) company for financial assistance to determine need. Saint Basil Academy’s Financial Assistance Committee uses this estimated need as a guideline in making awards.

Families that qualify are eligible to receive need-based financial assistance. Scholarship recipients that qualify may receive need-based assistance in addition to their scholarship.

Is Financial Assistance renewable each year?

You must complete a financial assistance form each year. Changes in your financial status may affect the size of your award.

How much Financial Assistance can I expect to receive?

Every family should expect to contribute something toward their daughter’s education. Our goal is to meet verified need for those that receive financial assistance. All financial information disclosed by families is confidential. Saint Basil Academy fully supports all anti-discrimination laws and does not engage in any unlawful discrimination.
If your financial situation has changed significantly in the past year, please explain the circumstances in a letter addressed to Saint Basil Academy Financial Assistance Committee. A limited amount of financial assistance is available for needy students.

The Financial Assistance Committee considers the following factors in determining the size of individual grants:

  • Financial need
  • Amount of funds available to the school
  • Number of applicants for financial assistance

We believe in challenging students to form personal moral values based on Christian teaching, thus deepening the students’ understanding of Christ and their call to faith in Him.
