Foothills utilizes FACTS to assess a family's financial assistance needs and determine need-based financial assistance awards. Families can complete a financial assistance application on the school's website, which requires a $40 application fee. FACTS analyzes the family's application, evaluates their ability to contribute to tuition, and sends a recommendation to the school based on their analysis.

The Financial Assistance Committee at Foothills uses FACTS's recommendations to make annual financial assistance awards. Several factors are taken into account when calculating a family's financial assistance needs, including income (both taxable and nontaxable), assets (home equity, savings, bonds, etc.), expenses, indebtedness, family size, age of parents/guardians (to allow for retirement savings), and the number of students attending tuition-charging schools. When determining award amounts, the committee also considers the number of financial assistance applications received each year and the amount of money available in the school's assistance pool.
Questions about financial assistance can be directed to our Business Director, Tina Mullins, who oversees the school's Financial Assistance Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
