Jackson Hole Community School

Financial Aid

JHCS is committed to educating a geographically, economically, and culturally diverse student body. Historically, 44% of the JHCS student body has received grants. Financial grants at JHCS represent a financial gift from the school, and are not repaid.

The financial aid application process is a system the school uses for allocating funds in as fair a manner as possible. Admissions decisions at JHCS are made separately from financial aid 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 make significant financial sacrifices to support this choice. To afford tuition, most families 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 manage their finances. Families need to be able to pay approximately $1,998 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 financial aid must go to the following website and complete the FAST (Financial Aid For School Tuition) application: FAST WEBSITE  

The entire process should take between 45 minutes and an hour. There is a $41 fee associated with the application, which you will need to pay.

Financial grant applications must be submitted to FAST by November 20 for early admission and by February 8 for regular admission.
