- Returning students, an enrolling sibling of a returning student, and children of faculty have first priority.
- The committee will award a specific dollar amount of assistance per child enrolled in the school.
- An award may be smaller than the amount of assistance requested by a family. An award will not exceed the amount requested.
- Class fees are included in the award determination. Lunch, athletic, and miscellaneous fees are not included in the award determination.

Additional Support for Enrolled Families
- Students who receive a 50% or greater award also receive a reduction in the cost of school lunch and athletic fees, and their Parents' Guild dues are waived.
- A family can request additional support for miscellaneous fees through the Good Samaritan Fund.
- A limited amount of additional support is available for the Early Childhood afternoon program (3:30 dismissal). Typically, in two parent households, both parents must work to receive assistance for this program.
