Financial Assistance

 

West Sound Academy is committed to cultural and economic diversity, and offers a robust financial assistance program providing grants to local students to help make a WSA IB Diploma education affordable.

Financial assistance and scholarships are grants that do not need to be repaid. However, we do require that recipients reapply for financial assistance annually.

Please Note: Financial assistance decisions are made independently of the admissions process. Families who are interested in financial assistance are encouraged to simultaneously apply for admission and for assistance.

Need for financial assistance is determined by an objective process utilizing FACTS Tuition Management and Grant & Aid Assessment. This process is coordinated by our West Sound Academy’s own Financial Assistance Committee. Based on the financial information you provide, FACTS G & A gives us an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps us make fair and impartial financial assistance decisions.

You may begin applying for financial assistance for any given academic year starting in early November of the preceding year. (For example, applications for the 2019-2020 academic year start on November 1, 2018) The process is outlined below. While we consider financial assistance requests regardless of the date submitted, as there is a finite amount of assistance to be awarded each year it is to a family’s benefit to submit its application as early as possible. Your family's FACTS G & A application must be submitted online. FACTS G & A delivers your information quickly to our school, and this in turn allows us to move promptly on making a decision about your eligibility for financial assistance.

 

 

Our application deadline is March 15.  

 

After that date, please contact Lisa Gsellman, Director of Admissions, for information about class availability.

For those families applying for financial aid, our Financial Aid Application deadline is also March 15.
