Tuition Assistance

We value a student body that is economically, socially, and racially diverse, and Beacon is committed to using its financial resources to help achieve this goal. The School awards a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance each year to accepted students whose families demonstrate financial need.

New families applying for tuition assistance should submit an online application for tuition assistance and provide selected tax documentation directly to FACTS, our need analysis provider, by February 1, 2019. Families are required to reapply for tuition assistance on an annual basis, taking care to meet required deadlines.
First, submit your Application for Admission and application fee to Beacon Academy by December 14, 2018, clicking the box that indicates you intend to apply for tuition assistance.

Next, log in to FACTS by clicking here or the logo below and complete the online application, after which you will be prompted to upload the required documentation to FACTS.

Please note that while the timing of submission may precede the filing of your 2018 tax returns, all tuition assistance awards are ultimately contingent upon a final review of the most recent year.

If the applicant resides in multiple households, each household responsible for any portion of tuition must complete the tuition assistance evaluation process as outlined above.

FACTS will notify you and Beacon Academy via email once your application is complete. Notification of tuition assistance awards will accompany admission acceptance letters.

Please contact Hilary Holder, Director of Admissions, at 224-999-1177 with questions about tuition assistance. All information will be kept confidential and independent of the admissions process.
