The Saint Basil Academy Tuition Grant Program provides partial tuition assistance for families who would otherwise be unable to send their children to private school. Although the family bears the primary responsibility for the student’s educational costs, there may be additional resources available to assist in your efforts.
The Tuition Grant program is funded by donations, the annual fundraising campaign, and may be complemented by the general fund. Tuition grants may be awarded to students who meet the school’s policy for allocation and the guidelines set by the grant committee. This program assists families who wish to educate their children in harmony with Saint Basil Academy Mission Statement.
The Tuition Grant Committee is a third party group exclusive of St Basil Academy staff members and most board members. The Grant Committee will review applications and decide the amount of aid awarded. The amount of funds available, the number of families who apply and the tuition cost, each affect how much the school can offer any student applying. Tuition decisions are made once per school year in August. Tuition grants are awarded for a single school year to allow St. Basil Academy to assist as many students and their families as possible.
Tuition Grant Eligibility Requirements
- Applicants must submit a full application packet to the St Basil Academy Bookkeeper on or before August 7th.
- Tuition grants are awarded based on financial need.
- Tuition grants will not exceed 50% of tuition cost and grants awarded may not take a family below an average tuition of $2,000 per student, including any other discounts.
- Tuition grants are not retroactive and do not need to be repaid.

An additional amount may be available for financial need arising throughout the year (to families who are not already receiving a grant). In such cases, the tuition grant committee will meet on a case-by-case basis to make a grant decision.
