Tuition Assistance Policy & Guidelines
Calhoun endorses the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Principles of Fair Practice for the Administration of Financial Aid. The primary responsibility for financing a Calhoun education rests with the family. In cases of separation or divorce, both parents are financially responsible for tuition and are required to submit financial statements and tax returns to TADS.
Calhoun is committed to providing ongoing assistance to K–12 families who enroll at Calhoun with tuition assistance and continue to demonstrate financial need. Families who enroll in K–12 paying full tuition are not eligible for tuition assistance in their time at Calhoun. In cases when a family's financial situation changes significantly, Calhoun has a small pool of emergency assistance available for one year only.
Deadline for 2018–19 School Year
