Financial Aid Procedures
To help us determine what a family is able to contribute to their child’s education, The Howard School utilizes the FACTS Grant & Aid as a trusted third party. Please know that the FACTS analysis is not the only information considered when determining a financial aid award decision. Additionally, the financial aid committee will take into account unexpected family financial situations, the need of our entire applicant pool, and the availability of funds.
