FAQs for Current Parents
Is every family required to submit a Tailored Tuition application?
No. Families are not required to participate.
I am a returning family, but I currently do not receive Tailored Tuition. Can I apply for a Tailored Tuition?
Yes. Returning families who have never applied for Tailored Tuition are eligible to apply. Because of your previously demonstrated ability to pay at the top of the range, you would submit Tailored Tuition application, along with a written statement explaining your change in financial circumstance (change in job or income, job loss, extenuating circumstance, etc.). The most recent two years of tax documentation are required.
When is the deadline for returning families to apply for Tailored Tuition?
Current families must submit their Tailored Tuition request by completing the Parents Financial Statement and uploading the required documents by June 15th each year.
What kind of financial situation is typical of those who receive Tailored Tuitions?
A wide range of families with a variety of circumstances receive Tailored Tuitions, from those who are able to pay close to top of the tuition range to those who are at the entry level of the range. Many factors are evaluated, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family. Click on each image to see an infographic with the full example. The examples only include a few of the factors considered.
Does North Cross School offer a “multi-student discount”?
Not exactly. However, one of the considerations for Tailored Tuitions relates to family size and the number of students applying for enrolled at North Cross School. The application takes into account the increased impact on a family's financial situation when applying for or enrolling more than one child.
Is it possible to attend North Cross School at no cost?
No. Every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. Our commitment to providing Tailored Tuitions means that we are sharing in that investment with you.
Do I need to apply for a Tailored Tuition every year?
Yes. A new application must be submitted every year. North Cross remains committed to maintaining similar levels of tuition responsibility, with similar financial circumstances. If a family’s ability to contribute to the student’s education increases, the tuition rate may increase accordingly.
Will Tailored Tuitions lead to school growth?
North Cross will continue to accept qualified, mission-appropriate students within the existing class-size limits. Tailored Tuitions are designed to make North Cross affordable for a broad range of families, with the goal of achieving a full student body in each division.
Does North Cross offer scholarships?
Yes. The school offers academic merit-based scholarships. There are no athletic scholarships.
