Financial Aid

Financial Aid Information

ACS accepts applications for those families who may need assistance with meeting the tuition obligations of the school. Families are encouraged to apply early as funding is limited. The Financial Aid Committee evaluates requests on a rolling basis and strives to award aid within a couple of weeks of all documentation being received.

Students who receive Financial Aid must maintain ACS standards. Student must maintain a 2.0 or higher and not have any Fs. Students must attend school regularly with at least a 90% attendance rate. Students must follow ACS’s behavioral standards in and out of the classroom. Students who do not meet the academic, attendance, or behavioral standards will forfeit their financial aid until the student is able to meet the standards once again.

Students enrolling in preschool should first contact ECECD for possible assistance, and then if the family is not eligible, submit an application for financial aid through the portal.

No financial aid is available for our Infant or Toddler programs.

A new student application must be submitted (which requires the application fee paid) or a returning student contract must be completed and the fee paid to process an application for financial aid.

The following supporting documents are required to complete the application process:

  • IRS Federal Income Tax Return, including all supporting schedules. If applicant and co-applicant file separately, we require both tax returns for the same tax year.
  • Copies of all the current year W-2 Wage and Tax Statements for both the applicant and co-applicant. NOTE: If you are applying before you have received all the current year W-2 Wage and Tax Statements, please submit them as soon as they become available.
  • Copies of all supporting tax documents if you have business income/loss.
