Awards available to families who complete the CFS Tuition Assistance application, and are awarded assistance upon their current need, are as follows:
Military: Families who are veterans or active military, and qualify for financial assistance, may receive up to a 10% award.
Public Service: Families employed by schools, fire departments, or law enforcement, and qualify for financial assistance, may receive up to a 10% award.
If a family has needs beyond what the above awards provide, there may be additional funding available. The DCS community generously donates to annual fundraising efforts specifically designated for the DCS Financial Aid Fund. Distribution of those funds is dependent upon the amount available for the current school year. Families with exceptional financial need may receive up to 50% annual tuition assistance. Aid is awarded for the current school year only. Financial Aid applications received by the upcoming school year deadline will be given first priority. However, as needs arise, applications are accepted year-round and will be awarded at the discretion of the Financial Aid Committee with regard to the amount of funds available.
