The CinDay Academy’s scholarship fund’s purpose is to provide financial assistance to those who demonstrate a financial hardship in K-12th grades. Through financial aid, the school tries to assist families who otherwise would not be able to make an Academy education possible for their children. The school’s goal is to encourage a diverse economic and cultural student body and accept students that match the school’s mission and philosophy regardless of financial status.
Educational costs are funded principally by tuition and we recognize the commitment and sacrifice that families make to finance tuition. The amount awarded depends on the family’s demonstrated need and the school’s available funds. The amount of financial aid awarded to each student is dependent upon the financial aid analysis as provided by SSS along with personal tax information, financial aid funds available, and the number of applicants for those funds. Financial aid awards do not meet full need and the amount of money available for the financial assistance programs is stipulated each year by the Scholarship Committee.
The need for tuition assistance should never discourage a family from applying to The Academy. Students are admitted on the basis of their academic and personal qualifications. Requests for tuition assistance are considered independently of the admission process.
