NOVA SCHOOL FINANCIAL AID

While families bear the primary responsibility for financing their child’s independent school education, NOVA School is committed to providing financial aid for students who have been accepted but are unable to pay the full tuition. 

In fact, in keeping with our commitment to economic diversity, in 2017 NOVA awarded over $281,000 in financial aid to 34% of NOVA families. The highest award was $15,250, the average was $8,267 and the lowest award was $1,000. Three payment plans make it possible to schedule tuition payments to meet family needs.

NOVA uses FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) to help determine the contribution a family can make towards educational expenses. The FAST application requires families to submit a tax return. Families may also submit a letter requesting the amount of aid that they feel is needed for the upcoming school year. NOVA School uses the results from FAST as a guideline in allocating a family's aid award.

Annual Procedure

Families must apply for financial aid each year. The school’s financial aid procedures prioritize returning students receiving assistance the previous school year. Families previously paying full tuition finding a financial situation change that prevents payment of the full tuition for the following year may apply for financial aid with the same priority as other returning families who have received financial aid in the past.

Financial Aid applications must be submitted through FAST by March 2nd.

Financial Aid awards will be determined by Early April.
