Financial Assistance

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance is available for families of The Parish School.

The Financial Assistance Committee of The Board of Trustees reviews and processes requests for tuition assistance. Awards are based on the amount of funds available, the family’s demonstrated need, and the number of families requesting assistance. Assistance may also be available for optional programs and therapies. Interested families may contact businessoffice@parishschool.org with any questions.

Applications for aid may be made at any time, provided funds are available. The Parish School provides tuition assistance for qualified families of any race, color, religion and ethnic origin.

Apply for Tuition Assistance

Families who have been accepted to The Parish School may apply for tuition assistance by completing an online application made available by FAST. Please note that your application will not be considered until it is received by FAST Processing.

Insurance Reimbursement

A certain number of classroom hours qualify as “group language treatment.” While each family is solely responsible for tuition and fees, we will provide the information necessary for you to complete and submit insurance claim forms on a monthly basis. 

Therapeutic services are provided through The Carruth Center. Please visit their site for tips on insurance and tax information.

Please also see our Financial Resources and Information page for more information on tuition as a medical expense, tax ramifications, tuition loan resources and more.
