Flexible Tuition Program

How does Flexible Tuition work?

Flexible Tuition encompasses several distinct opportunities to receive discounted tuition. These include Need-Based Aid which is determined by completing an application through FACTS, Lower and Middle School Scholarships for newly enrolled students, and Sibling Discounts which are automatically given for multi-sibling families. All families will be eligible to participate in the Flexible Tuition Program. With this model, each family contributes according to their means.

How do I apply?

We ask families who wish to participate to complete a FACTS application when they apply. This separate and confidential process allows us to compile information about your income and expenses to determine an equitable contribution to tuition. To help accommodate potential changes in your financial status, you will fill out a new application each school year.

What if I have more than one child enrolled at SJA?

Families enrolling more than one student at SJA will receive a sibling discount for each additional child.

Can my child still apply for scholarship opportunities?

Yes, your child can still apply for scholarship opportunities. St. James Academy is proud to offer academic scholarships to new students.

SIBLING DISCOUNTS

10% for the second child

15% for the third child and any additional children

SCHOLARSHIPS

Lower School

Withdraw from a 529 Plan

Up to $10,000 per year from a 529 Plan can be used towards private school education.

Monthly Payment Plan

We partner with FACTS, a national, third-party tuition management service to offer a monthly payment plan. Enrolling in FACTS also permits you to pay tuition using automated bank debits or credit card payments.

Additional Loan Options

Sallie Mae offers a K-12 Family Education Loan at unpublished, but “competitive” interest rates. Another resource is Your Tuition Solution which offers pre-college education loans at fixed rates.
