Tuition Assistance

The Summit Academy is committed to serving families and a key component of this includes the effort to keep our exceptional education priced below the average private high school tuition rates. In addition, we have set in place procedures that will help us provide further tuition assistance for some families in the 2017-2018 school year.

How do I apply?

  • Families should first apply for admission to The Summit at http://summitacademyva.org/apply/
  • We employ “FACTS Grant and Aid Management” service which is a reputable third party service used in many private schools. The FACTS application process helps ensure that financial need is determined objectively and appropriately.

Need Based Assistance.
The Summit Academy has established a tuition assistance committee that will utilize information from FACTS to help determine the need and the amount of the award. The committee does not have a specific formula to determine the award amount, but will seek to take into account each family’s individual circumstances.

Is there a specific income level that makes a family ineligible for an award?
No – FACTS takes a holistic account into consideration when assessing need.

Is there a deadline to apply?
The Summit has a rolling admissions process. However, we have a set amount of funds that are designated for tuition assistance in the 2017-2018 school year. The Tuition Assistance process parallels the admission process and acceptance letters for admission will be sent on March 31.

Early Applications for Tuition Assistance Will be Prioritized. Please Consider the Following: 

  • The Tuition Assistance Fund operates from a set amount of finances that have been specifically designated for such purposes.
  • The Fund is managed by a separate oversight committee that will determines awards and amounts.
  • Priority will be given to all Tuition Assistance applications that have been submitted by March 31.
  • All students that have applied for Tuition Assistance by March 31 will receive a response by April 29
  • For this reason families that are interested in applying for tuition assistance should not delay in submitting an application to the school. Applications for Tuition Assistance in 2017/18 should be submitted no later than March 31.

What if I have more than one student?
The Summit Academy has a separate standard policy for reduced tuition for families that have multiple students enrolled. Families that are eligible for the multiple-student reduced tuition may still apply for tuition assistance submitting all relevant information through FACTS.

How can I contribute to The Summit Tuition Assistance Fund?
The newly established Tuition Assistance Fund has been created to help has many students as possible afford a quality education that will form young people as strong, capable thinkers who will in turn invest those energies and talents towards the good of their communities.

The Summit Academy is a 501c3 and all financial contributions are tax deductible.
