We believe economic diversity improves the educational and social experience for students and is critical to sustaining a healthy school culture. Our generous Tuition Assistance program supports our commitment to making an Old Orchard education accessible to families of all income levels. We encourage you to explore the program below.
Our Tuition Assistance program supports our commitment to making an Old Orchard education accessible to families from a wide range of income levels. Through this program, we are able to offer adjusted tuition packages for financially eligible families.
To help evaluate Tuition Assistance decisions, Old Orchard uses FACTS Grant & Aid system. We ask all interested families to complete and submit the FACTS’ online Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment. This provides a starting point to help Old Orchard make fair and objective Tuition Assistance decisions.
- Tuition Assistance applications for the 2023-24 school year (including all supporting materials) are due February 3, 2023.
- A completed application for admission to Old Orchard must be submitted before the school is able to consider or discuss Tuition Assistance.
- Applying for Tuition Assistance does not influence the school’s admission decisions in any way; if your child is eligible for admission, he or she will be offered a place at Old Orchard regardless of financial need or the school’s ability to offer a Variable Tuition package.
- Applying for Tuition Assistance does not guarantee Old Orchard will be able to offer assistance.
- Packages apply to a single school year. All families, both new and returning, will need to reapply and provide updated documents by the application deadline each year.
