AACS offers some automatic tuition discounts to a few narrowly defined groups:
- Multi-Child - A 10% reduction for the 3rd or more concurrently enrolled student, applied to the youngest students.
- Alumni -10% reduction for the children of someone who earned an AACS diploma.
- Pastor - 25% for students with a parent who is a full time, vocational pastor.
There is some prior attendance and pastoral service that does not meet these strict definitions. In such cases, families are encouraged to make an application for need based assistance, highlighting these factors in their application for consideration by the committee.
Need Based Assistance
Annapolis Area Christian School offers tuition assistance to families with demonstrated financial need. The FACTS system
used for tuition payment management is also used for tuition assistance assessment. Once you have completed your tuition assistance application online
, FACTS will verify it along with your supporting documents to provide a need assessment to the school.
New and Returning Students
AACS is now considering applications for tuition assistance on a rolling basis. The FACTS online application will remain open until the new school year or the exhaustion of assistance funds. Please note that an assistance application is not considered complete until the application has been completed and the requested tax documents have been received by FACTS. It can take FACTS up to two weeks to process the information and supply AACS with a need assessment. The AACS assistance committee’s goal is to turn that assessment into a decision within ten days. Schedule disruptions such as spring break may preclude reaching this goal from time to time.
Applying for Tuition Assistance
The school does not review assistance applications until a student has been accepted. Application for tuition assistance does not affect the admissions decision. Should the amount of assistance offered be insufficient for the family to continue with the student's enrollment, enrollment may be withdrawn and the tuition deposit refunded.
