Special Circumstances

Should you have particular circumstances that should be shared with Calhoun's Financial Aid Committee, please include a letter of special circumstance in your TADS application. Special circumstances may include a non-working parent or difficulty getting financial documentation for a second household. 

Financial Aid 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. All parents and households 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 receive financial aid and continue to demonstrate financial need. Families who enroll in K-12 paying full tuition are not eligible for financial aid in their first four years at Calhoun. Families who enroll in preschool may apply for financial aid in kindergarten. In cases when a family's financial situation changes significantly, Calhoun has a small pool of emergency aid guaranteed for one year only. Current families are invited to reach out to Director of Enrollment with questions about affordability. 

Deadline for 2020–21 School Year
