Financial Aid

Information & Deadline

Families seeking financial aid must file an application through the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program in Wilmington, DE. FAST provides Jupiter Christian School a need-based financial aid analysis service which ensures that our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice. All information from FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family's financial aid request.

Deadlines

Financial Aid applications for the following year will open to all currently enrolled families December 1st. New families may complete the application concurrently with enrollment and are encouraged to complete it by February 15, 2018. Financial Aid Applications are due for all current families February 15, 2018. Taxes for the 2017 year are due with Financial Aid application but may be turned in no later than May 31, 2018. Awards granted before taxes are in will be contingent upon review of 2017 taxes, to be done by the Business Office as they are submitted. The Business Office will follow up with all families that have not turned in taxes by June 1. Financial aid is awarded based upon a determination of the family’s financial need. The maximum financial aid awarded will be no greater than 50% of the annual tuition. Awards are made until designated funds are exhausted. Please note that financial aid awards are made for one year only and, therefore, you must reapply each year.

The receipt of financial aid carries with it the responsibility to achieve minimum standards of academic success. Upper School students receiving financial aid must maintain a cumulative Jupiter Christian grade point average of 2.5. Lower School students receiving financial aid must achieve an overall end of the year average of C (70 points) in core subjects. Failure to maintain these grade levels at the end of the academic year will result in the loss of financial aid for the subsequent year.
