To help us in assessing need for tuition adjustment, we are using the services of TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services). This assessment takes into account a family’s income, savings, assets and liabilities, as well as any special circumstances. The application process is fair and confidential. We will use the TADS assessment as a jumping-off-point in arriving at a tuition adjustment that will best work for your family. This worksheet will provide you with a document that helps you gather all the information you will need before you actually apply online. We can also provide you with a hard copy of the TADS worksheet.
We do not want the TADS application fee ($39 per family) to prevent families from applying for tuition aid. We have a limited number of waivers. Please call to inquire about a waiver, or with any other questions you might have.
There are State funds available which can be applied for via the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority. Information on the Opportunity Scholarship (for low-income students), the Children With Disabilities Grant, and the Education Savings Account (also for those with special needs) can be found by visiting www.ncseaa.edu.
If necessary, we will also help you to find additional resources for your child if at all possible. We are not eligible for Medicaid or insurance, but we can provide a letter for you to submit to the IRS detailing how our school day serves your child’s special needs. In conjunction with a letter from your child’s doctor, this may entitle you to a tax deduction.
