financial aid

We believe that qualified students who desire an education at LCA should not be turned away because they cannot pay full tuition. Therefore, we have established a tuition assistance program to help families in need. Tuition assistance is awarded strictly on the basis of need in a completely confidential process. The request for tuition assistance for new students is a separate process from the admission process and does not affect one’s application for admission.

Families seeking tuition assistance must file an application through the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program. This process is a flexible and confidential way for families to represent their own particular circumstances more accurately. To ease the online application process, FAST provides 24/7 help desk support and a comprehensive Parent Guide.

FAST provides LCA a needs-based tuition assistance analysis service which ensures that our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice. All information from FAST is completely confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family’s financial aid request. 

There is a modest application fee for using FAST, payable upon completion of the application.
