Tuition Assistance

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Jackson Hole Community School seeks to educate a socio-economically diverse student body. Our admissions process is need-blind, and we are committed to ensuring that every student who is accepted for admission is able to attend, regardless of financial circumstances. Historically, approximately 40% of JHCS students have received tuition assistance and/or scholarships.

Financial Aid

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 still need financial assistance. If, after reviewing your family finances, you believe you are not able to afford the tuition, you should consider applying for financial aid.

The Community School uses an online financial aid application process called “FAST” (Financial Aid for School Tuition) in order to allocate funds in as fair a manner as possible. Families interested in being considered for financial aid must go to the following website and complete the FAST application: FAST WEBSITE


The entire process should take between 45 minutes and an hour and requires a $45 application fee from the family. (This fee may be waived in certain circumstances.)

 

Financial grant applications for the 2021-2022 school year must be submitted to FAST by or before January 29th, 2021.
