Tuition Assistance

Abiding Savior Academy understands the financial commitment our families make to partner with us in their child’s education. Tuition assistance is available to families with students enrolled in first through twelfth grade on the basis of demonstrated need and to the extent of available scholarship monies. If you believe your financial resources are not sufficient to meet tuition costs (household income under $80,000 or an income above $80,000 but extenuating circumstances), you are encouraged to apply for scholarship consideration and opportunity.

We utilize a program referred to as TADS, which stands for Tuition Aid Data Services. TADS is a third party service that provides an analytical framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Information provided by TADS is used by our scholarship committee to help determine the level of assistance provided. This information is held in confidence.

2024-2025 School Year Tuition Assistance
Scholarship applications will be accepted beginning February 15th through April 15th, 2024. Any approved scholarships awarded by May 15th, 2024 may be eligible for a 12-month payment plan. Scholarships awarded after May 15th will assume a nine-month payment plan

How to Apply
The first step is to apply to Abiding Academy. Next, complete the TADS application. Please take a moment to review the TADS Financial Aid Application Worksheet to determine the information you will need to gather. There is an application fee to process the application through TADS.
