Tuition & Financial Aid
Financial Assistance 2024-2025
The Howard School empowers children with language-based learning differences by providing research-based expertise that is tailored to each child's unique profile. The Howard School understands investing in your child's education is a significant commitment, and each year we provide over $700,000 in need-based tuition assistance from the school's financial aid funds and Georgia GOAL.
All financial aid decisions are made based on financial need without regard to student's race, color, religion, ethnicity, or national origin. The Howard School relies on the truthfulness of the information provided in each application, and families who apply acknowledge their continuing obligation to notify the school if financial circumstances improve.
Income and assets of all parents/guardians will be considered and an award will not be bound by the statement that one parent/guardian has denied, legally or otherwise, any responsibility for educational expenses. If either parent/guardian has remarried, the committee will also consider the income and assets of the step-parent.
Financial Aid Procedures
To help us determine what a family is able to contribute to their child’s education, The Howard School utilizes FACTS Grant & Aid as a trusted third party. Additionally, the financial aid committee will take into account unexpected family financial situations, the needs of our entire applicant pool, and the availability of funds.
PLEASE NOTE THAT EARLY TAX RETURN PREPARATION WILL BE NEEDED IN ORDER TO MEET THE FINANCIAL AID DEADLINE OF FEBRUARY 23, 2024.
To be considered for financial assistance for the 2024/25 school year, submission of all financial aid documents from all custodial, non-custodial, and step-parents (including uploaded 2023 Federal Tax Returns, all supporting schedules and forms, and W-2’s or 1099’s) SHOULD BE COMPLETED NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 23, 2024. AVAILABLE FUNDS ARE LIMITED AFTER THIS DEADLINE HAS PASSED. Since financial aid is granted to students on the basis of need and availability of funds, awards are granted for one year at a time and must be applied for annually.
