In keeping with our commitment to diversity, The Friends School of Atlanta seeks a student body that represents varied economic backgrounds. Once a student has been accepted for admission, tuition assistance is determined and renewed on the basis of demonstrated financial need without regard to gender identity, race, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or family structure.
The tuition assistance program is guided by our belief that parents have an obligation to pay the educational expense of their children to the extent that they are able. The purpose of aid is to fill the gap between the actual cost of a year’s tuition and what a family can realistically be expected to pay. Tuition assistance in one year does not guarantee assistance in subsequent years.
How to apply
To help determine a family’s contribution, we use an outside service that helps us look at the relative needs of all financial assistance applicants. If you are applying for tuition assistance, we strongly recommend that you complete the tuition assistance application as soon as possible. In order to begin the process, all prospective parents are directed to complete the Tuition Assistance Application via Blackbaud’s website. For further details and questions, contact our Director of Finance, Elsie Santway, by phone at 404-373-8746 x8140, or via email at [email protected].
Tuition Assistance applications for the 2024-2015 school year are due on February 5, 2024. Unfortunately, this deadline cannot be extended.
