Tuition Assistance

Our Tuition Assistance Committee oversees a needs-based tuition assistance process and is committed to helping reduce the financial burden of tuition for qualified families. If the full cost of an Embers education poses a significant obstacle, prospective families applying for enrollment can also apply for Tuition Assistance.

The Tuition Assistance award is granted after:

  • a prospective student completes the admissions process and is accepted into Embers Academy.
  • the family submits the deposit and signs an enrollment contract.
  • the family completes an application for Tuition Assistance.

A completed application for Tuition Assistance (including supporting documentation) is due within 10 days after a student contract is signed. If a family chooses not to accept their Tuition Assistance award, they may choose to withdraw. In this case, the enrollment contract will be canceled and the deposit returned.
