WHO PAYS WHAT?

An ACE Scholarship is worth a maximum of $4,200 per year for grades K-8 and $4,500 for grades 9-12.  Scholarship cannot exceed the full amount of tuition and fees at the school.  The families are responsible for working out a payment plan with the school for the remainder of tuition.

 

THE ACE SCHOLARSHIP CAN FOLLOW YOUR CHILD.

If your child is awarded a scholarship, those funds are portable during the school year and may be used at any qualifying private school. So, if the private school you select ends up not being the right fit, you can transfer your child to another partner private school, and the scholarship goes with them.
