Tuition Assistance Policy

Oakcrest operates under a need-blind admission policy and is committed to providing access to qualified students regardless of their financial need. Oakcrest Tuition Assistance is intended to provide access to an Oakcrest education for qualified students who might otherwise not be able to attend because their household financial situation does not support payment of full tuition.
  • Oakcrest seeks to fully fund demonstrated need. Due to limited funds, not all who qualify will receive an offer of assistance, or an offer that fully funds demonstrated need.
  • Tuition Assistance awards are made for one academic year. Re-enrolling families must complete a new application for each year that the student enrolls.
  • Applications must be completed on time to be considered. Late applications will be handled as they arrive and as funds allow. Only complete applications will be considered.
  • 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.
  • Family contribution is calculated prior to consideration of any merit award. The amount of a merit award is then added to the family contribution to determine need.
  • 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.
