Financial Aid Program
We want to make the Edge experience available to all who qualify, regardless of financial situation. To do that, we currently offer a financial assistance program for our tuition fees based on a family’s need. While we would be thrilled to accept all applications, there is a limited amount of funding and accordingly not all requests can be awarded. Families must apply and qualify every year.
1. What is financial aid?
Financial aid provides assistance with tuition fees based solely on a family’s financial need. Funds are provided from donations as well as fundraising events run by the Edge School Foundation. A request for financial aid does not have any impact on admissions decisions.
2. Who can apply for financial aid?
Anyone can apply for financial aid. Priority is given to Edge families currently receiving financial aid. All successful applicants will be required to pay a minimum amount as determined by the Financial Assistance Committee (FAC). While we would be thrilled to accept all applications, there is a limited amount of funding and accordingly not all requests can be awarded.
3. How do we apply for financial aid?
Families complete and submit a detailed application to our Financial Aid Committe. All information is kept strictly confidential. Applications can be requested from our Admissions Department.
4. How is financial aid determined?
The FAC uses a standard formula to determine the needs of each family. Consideration of income, expenses, assets and debts, age, size of family and the number of children at tuition paying schools and universities establishes the need. Sometimes there are additional extenuating circumstance a family faces which the FAC considers as well.
5. How much can we expect to receive?
For families who qualify, amounts received are between $2,000 and $10,500. Applications are considered on an individual basis, so the amounts awarded can vary significantly.
6. Is the amount of Financial Aid renewable each year ?
A new application must be submitted each year. The amount received previously is not guaranteed the following year. Families are considered for financial aid if current school year fees are up to date.
