Tuition, Affordability, & Financial Aid
According to a Gallup Poll on the public's attitude toward public school, 59% of parents of school-age children in a public school said they would enroll their child in a private school if they could afford to do so. However, many families interested in a private school never investigate the options due to concerns and misperceptions regarding the cost. The following information may help to demonstrate that the benefits of a Quest Academy education can be accessible to your child.
At Quest, we are proud of our independence from local, state, and federal governments. This allows us to provide unparalleled opportunities to develop challenging, innovative, and creative educational programs. That independence, however, means that we are completely dependent on tuition revenue and other revenue sources (philanthropy, endowment earning, and auxiliary revenue streams) to support the mission, students, faculty and the broad range of programs we offer. In fact, the total cost to Quest Academy of educating a student is, on average, $1,300 more than the tuition charged. The other revenue sources help to subsidize all students, including those who do not receive any financial aid.
Quest seeks to attract a diverse and talented student body. To achieve that end, Quest is committed to providing financial assistance to qualified students whose families cannot afford full tuition. For the 2011-12 school year, Quest awarded almost $500,000 in financial aid, to about 20% of the student body. The average award to a qualifying student for the 2012-13 school year if $7,470 or about 42 percent of full tuition.
Quest provides several tuition payment schedules: in full, in 3 installments, or in 10 installments. In addition tuition loans are available from the NAIS partner,Springstone Financial LLC. Information and an application can be found at http://www.yourtuitionsolution.com/
Quest's financial aid program provides assistance for families who have made thoughtful planning and lifestyle choices yet find themselves unable to afford the full annual tuition.These families are committed to financing their child's education to the fullest extent that they are able. For these families with clearly demonstrated financial need, and within the limits of the financial aid budget, Quest provides assistance as follows: first, to our families that currently receive aid; followed by aid to other current families; and then aid to new families. Currently 20% of Quest's students receive financial aid. Financial aid is only available for kindergarten through 8th grade.
The information you will need to apply for financial aid is listed under Financial Aid Forms in the right column. Questions about financial aid, tuition loans, or tuition payments should be directed to Deborah Chen, Director of Finance and Operations at 847.202.8035, x419 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
