Admissions

Tuition Assistance

Jackson Hole Classical Academy’s Tuition Assistance Program is designed to help students attend the school. Our system evaluates each family’s situation on an individual basis and determines their ability to afford enrollment.

Important Items to Note:

  • Applications for tuition assistance for the 2018 – 2019 school year are due by February 5, 2018.
  • A Tuition Assistance Award results in reduced tuition; it is not a loan and does not need to be paid back.
  • The Academy utilizes a third party assessment partner, FAST, to objectively analyze each family’s financial situation.
  • The Admissions process and the Tuition Assistance process are handled independently of one another. A student must have submitted an Enrollment Application prior to consideration for a Tuition Assistance Award.
  • Jackson Hole Classical Academy’s Tuition Assistance Committee will review each application individually to determine the amount of an Award given.
  • The Tuition Assistance Committee will review each application individually, and take into consideration all information provided by FAST, as well as supplemental information provided by parents, to determine the amount of an Award given.
  • Submission of 2017 tax information is preferred. 2016 tax information will be accepted if it is too difficult to obtain 2017 information prior to February 5th.
  • There is a $41 non-refundable processing fee per family, payable to FAST on completion of the tuition assistance application.
  • Please click below to begin your application for tuition assistance. You will be taken to the FAST website.

Financial Aid

Applying for Financial Aid The Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program provides a need-based financial aid analysis service that includes an income verification process. All information from FAST remains confidential and is reviewed by the school. You must apply for financial aid each year, using the online FAST application. After applying, you will mail tax documents to FAST for income verification purposes.

**Please enter your name on the application exactly as it appears on your tax return. The online application process is self-guided. You can partially complete an application and go back to it another time, if you don’t want to complete the application in one sitting.

**After you complete your application, you will mail your tax return to FAST. In addition to the online FAST application, families must also file with FAST a 1040, W-2′s and all relevant schedules before the Committee will consider an award request. Please use the FAST Quick Processing System to print a bar code page to mail with your tax documents. After you use the code for your application, you will see the FAST Quick Processing screen. You can also log back into your application and click on the link “Quick Processing for Tax documents to be sent.”

Please mail copies of your tax documents to the address below. Please do not send any originals, and do not fax or e-mail the tax information:
