Tuition Assistance

Applying for Tuition Assistance

Beacon Academy seeks an economically, socially, and racially diverse student body, and the School is committed to using its financial resources to help achieve this goal. The School awards a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance to accepted students who qualify financially.

New families applying for tuition assistance for the 2018-2019 school year are required to submit a completed online application and mail selected tax documentation directly to FACTS, our need analysis provider, no later than Thursday, February 1st, 2018. Families are required to reapply on an annual basis, taking care to adhere to all deadlines so aid can be awarded accordingly.

How to Apply


Submit your Application for Admission and $100 application fee to Beacon Academy indicating where applicable that you intend to apply for tuition assistance.


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


Please note that while the timing of submission may precede the filing of your 2016 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.
