We understand the decision to enroll in ICS is carefully weighed against the resources available.  Because some families may need tuition assistance, we have a Tuition Assistance program for those demonstrating genuine financial need. Tuition Assistance is made available by a designated amount in our annual budget as well as through funds donated specifically for that purpose. An application must be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance. Please click the questions and answers below for additional important details.

Q: Who should apply? A: Any family may apply if they can demonstrate financial need.

Families that have made ICS a financial priority and still do not have enough resources available to cover their child’s tuition should apply. All families are asked to conscientiously pursue other means of meeting their tuition needs (such as part-time employment, help from extended family members, utilizing savings, reducing expenses, etc.) before asking the school for assistance.

An application must be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance.

Q: What is the maximum assistance a student can receive? A: Tuition can be reduced by up to 50%.

Tuition Assistance applies to tuition only. All other fees and charges are due in full. Assistance awards may range from 5% to a maximum of 50% of the tuition amount. No other discounts will be applied for students receiving Tuition Assistance.

Q: When should I apply? A: January 13th is the Priority deadline for Applications and all documentation to be received.

Returning families should apply for Tuition Assistance as soon as possible after October 1st and no later than January 13th for Priority processing. A current application MUST be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance.

New families may apply for Tuition Assistance AFTER submitting their initial enrollment application.

All documentation must be received on time. Incomplete applications cannot be reviewed.

If you are applying for student Admission after  January 13th, please be aware that all Tuition Assistance funding may already be awarded to those who applied by the Priority deadline.

There is no guarantee that assistance will continue for a family from year-to-year.

Q: How should I apply? Is there a cost? A: Applications are submitted online.

Apply for confidential processing of Tuition Assistance online at FACTS Tuition Management and submit ALL required items by the deadline. Required documentation includes: tax return and supporting documents from the immediately preceding calendar year, as well as detailed asset and expense information.

The application can be started and saved for later completion and submission. A $40 processing fee is collected at the time of application submission.


Q: How are decisions made? A: The School Board confidentially reviews all applications and decisions will be made as soon as possible after January 13th.

The School Board Financial Aid Committee reviews all applications and uses analysis from a tuition management company for assessment as well as supporting documentation in making decisions. Information is kept confidential. Assistance is based on a family’s financial need as well as available funding. Unfortunately it is not possible to provide Tuition Assistance to every applicant.

Q: When will I be notified of the decision? A: Priority deadline applicants should receive notification at enrollment or re-enrollment.

When applications are received by the Priority Deadline, decisions for returning families will be sent out at re-enrollment. New families who apply by the Priority Deadline should receive their decision upon enrollment acceptance. Please ensure that information is submitted accurately and completely. All decisions are final.

Q: If I apply for student admission after the Tuition Assistance deadline will there still be funds available? A: Usually no, but please check with the Finance Director.

Assistance is not withheld from qualifying families who submit an application by the Priority Deadline; therefore all available funding may be awarded to those applying by the Priority Deadline. The Admissions Manager or Finance Director can confirm whether funding is still available after this Priority round of awards. If no late funding is available, families are still welcome to submit an application (in case additional funding becomes available for the current school year) or they may wait to apply until the following school year.
