Oakcrest recognizes the vocation of women as trustees of humanity and provides a culture of freedom and responsibility in which young women thrive. For more than 45 years, Oakcrest School has partnered with parents to challenge girls to develop their intellect, character, faith and leadership potential to thrive in college and throughout their lives. We are committed to providing access to this excellent program of education and formation to as many young women as possible. To that end, we have consistently provided generous levels of tuition assistance to families whose financial circumstances make it difficult for them to pay full tuition. If you believe you are in need of assistance, we encourage you to apply for it.
Currently 50% of Oakcrest students receive some level of tuition assistance. The average award is approximately $11,750.

Tuition Payment Plans
Families have the option of paying tuition in full, or establishing a payment plan using FACTS. The FACTS payment plan enables families to pay all of the annual tuition (minus the $1,000 Reservation Deposit), plus other school-related fees (e.g. bus service fees, lunch service fees) and the tuition refund insurance premium in monthly installments without interest charges.

Oakcrest School offers a Tuition Refund Insurance Plan for an additional fee of 1.0% of gross tuition. Participation in this program is optional for families who pay tuition in full directly to the school, and it is required for families who elect to pay tuition monthly using the FACTS payment plan.
Oakcrest is committed to providing an education to as many young women as possible. Nevertheless, the resources of the school are limited. We ask all families to make a maximum and honest effort to cover as much of the cost of tuition as they can from their own available resources.
Oakcrest School follows its Tuition Assistance policy and will use the FACTS Grant & Assessment Aid methodology as a guide to determine each family’s demonstrated need. Oakcrest reserves the right to request additional information, such as tax schedules and other tax and/or income records. Income tax documentation substantiates information provided, but it is not considered in isolation.
In accordance with the Oakcrest School mission, Oakcrest takes into consideration family circumstances that affect ability to pay. All Tuition Assistance decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.
Tuition Assistance is granted each year on the basis of demonstrated need and available funds. Individual family/household circumstances that determine a family’s ability to pay include but are not limited to annual income, typical household expenses, real estate assets, cash savings, investments, number of dependents, special circumstances (e.g., medical expenses for a special needs child), etc. Tuition Assistance is not awarded solely on family/household income level.
All families are expected to make a maximum and honest effort to cover the cost of tuition from their available resources. Due to the school’s limited resources, not all who qualify will receive an offer of tuition assistance, or an offer that fully funds demonstrated need. Families may request a reconsideration of their award by writing to the Chief Financial Officer and stating the reason for the request. Please understand that there are often families waiting for funds that are not taken up in the first distribution. Families may also wish to consider Education Loans from qualified organizations, such as Your Tuition Solution (www.tuitionsolution.com).
Oakcrest understands that household circumstances can change outside of the Tuition Assistance cycle. Please contact the Chief Financial Officer to initiate a discussion so that your situation can be addressed by the Tuition Assistance Committee. All decisions are dependent upon availability of funds.
