Tuition Assistance Social Standards
Please read the social standards below.
By clicking I agree below, you are agreeing to the standards and will be taken to the FACTS website.
Additionally, we encourage parents to think long term and begin to plan how they will be able to increase the percentage of tuition they pay each year.
Because of Shepherd Valley's limited resources, we do require both parents to contribute towards tuition, whether from one or more households. For example, in separated or divorced families, in order for the family to be considered for Tuition Assistance, we require that either a) both parents complete the FACTS paperwork, or b) the single parent provide legal verification of his/her status as sole financial provider.
We make every effort to support families when their income is lower than it could be because one parent stays at home with a young child. However, when all the children in the home are in First through Eighth Grade, the expectation is that both parents make a meaningful contribution to the family’s income. Barring extenuating circumstances, the TA Committee will make a standard income adjustment in cases where there is not a second income in a family with two healthy, capable parents.
I agree with the social standards and am committed to their intent.
