How it works

We’ll consider your annual income, the number of adults and dependents in your household, and then determine a scholarship to align with your individual situation. Our goal is to help all families who qualify for assistance. If your family gets assistance through the county or other agency, please let us know. Scholarships are possible thanks to individual and business contributions.
