Tuition Assistance

At The Fulton School, we believe in providing an excellent education for children from all social and economic backgrounds so admissions decisions are made independent of need. Tuition assistance is only available to full-time students (toddlers and half-day preschoolers are not eligible). Our school uses a third-party service to assist in determining financial assistance awards. 

New Families
New families must first go through the admissions process (see the Admissions Section of this website) for acceptance.  Once accepted, you will need to submit your enrollment agreement along with a $500 deposit, per child.  At that time you may apply for assistance by completing the tuition assistance application online and by submitting the required documents.  Once reviewed, award letters will be emailed.  If you do not accept the award, the $500 deposit will be returned. Note: No tuition assistance application will be reviewed without first being accepted to the school. Please note that a student’s acceptance to TFS is made independent of tuition assistance considerations.

Returning Families
We require parents to re-apply for tuition assistance each year. During re-enrollment season in February, you will need to submit your re-enrollment agreement and $500 deposit, per child (no tuition assistance application will be reviewed without a re-enrollment form and deposit). Next you will complete the online tuition assistance application, submitting the required documents by mail or online.  Once reviewed, award letters will be mailed. If you do not accept the award, the $500 deposit will be returned. Please note: Returning family awards will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Returning families applying for tuition assistance must be up to date on current year account balances before an award will be offered. Assistance awards may vary from year to year.

Note: Families who wish to apply for financial assistance for the 2023-24 school year should submit an application through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. This third-party online system is not yet accepting applications. We can email you a link with instructions in February when the application is open. [Published January 19, 2023.]
