Financial assistance at St. John’s Episcopal Parish Day School is the monetary assistance provided to reduce educational costs to families.  It comes in the form of an outright grant against tuition.  Need is generally defined as the difference between educational expenses and a family’s ability to pay those expenses.  Since eligibility is based on many factors, parents who feel unable to pay the full tuition should always investigate the possibility of receiving financial assistance.  St. John’s does provide a limited amount of financial assistance available to assist families who would otherwise find enrollment impossible.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for St. John’s Parish Day School for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment no later than March 15. However, since grant funds are limited it is best to submit your application as soon as you can. Applicants can apply online beginning December 15 by clicking here. Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:

      • Copies of the 2016 Form 1040 Federal Income Tax Returnincluding all schedules and copies of your W-2 form(s).  If either parent is a shareholder in an S Corporation or a partner in a Partnership the appropriate Schedule K-1 must be provided.
      • If dependents of the applicant attend tuition charging institutions , please provide directly to the St. John’s Financial Aid Committee the following information:

o   For dependents who attended college prior to 2016, the IRS 1098-T form (Tuition Statement) or financial aid award letter (if appropriate).

o   For dependents matriculating to college for the first time in 2016, a copy of the acceptance letter and financial aid award letter (if appropriate).

o   For pre-college age dependents, a copy of their enrollment document and financial aid award letter (if appropriate) from the tuition charging institution.

In the matter of divorce or separation of parents, the Financial Aid Committee will consider the income and assets of both natural parents, if living, before making an award. If either parent has remarried, we will consider also the income and assets of the stepparent.  Note, it is required that the custodial and non-custodial parents must each complete an application to FACTS. If this information is not provided, the Financial Aid Committee will be unable to consider awarding a grant to the student.

All supporting documentation can be uploaded in PDF format online.

Documentation can also be faxed to 1.866.315.9264 or mailed to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, P.O. Box 82524, Lincoln, NE 68501-2524. FACTS will provide an applicant ID number when applying that should be used on all faxed or mailed correspondence.
