Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial aid and scholarships are available to Pre-K (5 full day only) through 12th grade students.

Financial Aid and Need-based Scholarships

Limited financial aid and need-based Finney scholarships are available each year. The application for aid is separate from the school application and enrollment process; interested families will need to apply for aid each year they are enrolled. Finney uses the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program to manage the application and award process, but all decisions regarding financial aid and need-based scholarship awards will be made by The Charles Finney School.

Financial Aid Process
  1. Complete the secure online FACTS application (one application per family, regardless of the number of students in the family)
  2. Pay the $40 financial aid application fee
  3. FACTS will process the application, which may take up to two weeks
  4. The Charles Finney School will review the application and make a decision regarding awarding aid and need-based scholarships
  5. Any awarded aid will be posted to the FACTS system
  6. You will be notified via email by FACTS when a decision is made
Important Notes
  • There are academic and behavioral standards that must be maintained by all financial aid and scholarship recipients. Please consult the Parent Student Handbook for further details.
  • Please plan to have your application completed and submitted to meet any deadlines.
  • Returning Finney families should complete an online FACTS application, including the submission of all required tax and financial documents, by April 14, 2023 at midnight. This will allow The Charles Finney School to consider a returning Finney family for financial aid and/or any need-based scholarships for the 2023-2024 school year.
  • Families of new applicants should complete the online FACTS application, including the submission of all required tax and financial documents, as soon as possible during the admissions/enrollment process. An applicant must first be accepted for enrollment by the school to receive a financial aid or scholarship award.
  • When applying you will need last year’s W2s and federal income tax forms. If you do not file taxes, please contact the Admissions Office prior to applying for financial aid.
  • FACTS has a 24-hour toll free hotline for help with the application at 1-866-441-4637 (Spanish language reps available).
