How Tuition Assistance Works
Tuition Assistance is available on a first come first serve basis to families whose income is less than 80% of the median income in Fort Collins. To determine your family’s eligibility, please see the Director.
All families will be contacted regarding eligibility criteria and asked for supporting documentation at certain times during the year, including prior to enrollment. Income and personal data will be kept in strictest confidence. Once documentation has been received, it will be determined if you qualify for a 10%, 15%, or 20% discount. More may be available dependent on funds.
All families receiving tuition assistance are required to volunteer 25 hours per school year.
Please note: We also accept children who do not meet the income criteria given above. As we’ve said, all families are welcome!
