JHCS is committed to educating a geographically, economically, and culturally diverse student body. Historically, over 50% of the JHCS student body has received financial grants. Financial grants at JHCS represent a financial gift from the school; they are not repaid. The financial aid application process is the means to allocate financial grants in as fair a manner as possible. Admissions decisions at JHCS are made separately from financial grant decisions, which are made annually and are based on a family's demonstrated need and available school funds. Applications for aid must be made each year.
Independent school education is a choice for families. Both JHCS and individual families will make significant financial sacrifices to support this choice. To afford tuition, most families will adjust their spending priorities, maximize both parents' earnings, and carefully manage assets. Even then, some families will need financial assistance regardless of how carefully they control their finances. A family will need to be able to pay approximately $1,775 per month for ten months to afford tuition. If after reviewing your family finances you believe you are not able to afford the monthly amount, your family should consider applying for a grant.
Families interested in being considered for a financial grant must go to the following website and complete the FAST (Financial Aid For School Tuition) application: FAST WEBSITE
The entire process should take 45 minutes - 1 hour. There is a $38 fee associated with the application, which you will need to pay. However, once your child is enrolled, we will reimburse your application fee of $25, which will be provided as a credit toward your tuition payment.
Financial grant applications must be submitted to FAST by November 1 for early admission and by February 1 for regular admission.
