Financial Assistance Statement of Purpose:
The purpose of Legacy’s financial assistance program is to enroll qualified students who could not otherwise afford to attend, thus maximizing the strength of the student body.
Financial Assistance Policy:
All financial assistance awards are made on the basis of a family’s demonstrated financial need, and are reserved for families who have no alternative to requesting assistance. All families requesting financial assistance must complete the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) application. There is a non-refundable $38 fee payable to FAST via Mastercard, Visa or American Express for each family application.
As Requested by FAST please submit a copy of the following to the address given by FAST:
- Legacy Application for financial assistance
- Most recent federal tax return
- Most recent W-2 form
Legacy’s Financial Assistance Committee reviews the information submitted and makes a decision based on information received.
In the event that the total demonstrated need of all families exceeds the financial assistance budget, the following categories may be considered in allocating awards in order to make the best fit of available resources.
Legacy Christian Academy also endorses and follows the NAIS Principles of Good Practice for financial assistance, including:
Legacy requires adequate documentation of family resources when determining need.
Legacy does not use financial need as a consideration in determining a student’s eligibility for admissions.
Legacy assesses annually, in a consistent and equitable manner, each family’s ability to pay for education.
Legacy recognizes that the primary responsibility for financing a student’s independent school education rests with his/her family.
Legacy safeguards the confidentiality of all financial information supplied by a family.
Legacy Christian Academy’s financial assistance policy is non-discriminatory on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national, or ethnic origin.
