Investing in a Foothills Education
At Foothills School, we view a great education as an investment in a child's future. We also realize that a private school education can be difficult for parents to afford without some assistance. Foothills School offers need-based financial aid to families who qualify.
Need-based Financial Aid
Foothills is committed to partnering with parents to help provide the best education for their children. As a school we provide financial aid to approximately 40% of our students. To be eligible for financial aid, a family must complete the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) form - this is typically due in late February. For the downloadable form, please visit http://sss.nais.org/parents.
Direct Family Support
For those families paying for an independent education personally, payments are due in full before the start of the school year or monthly payment plans are available. A full description of payment options is available on the student enrollment contract, and the school works to create many workable options for families.
Should your family apply for financial aid?
The standards for financial aid calculations implemented by the National Association of Independent Schools change based on the national economic outlook. If you are concerned about your ability to support a Foothills education, you are encouraged to complete the full application process.
