We’re excited that you are exploring an Education for Life at the Adelson Educational Campus. We understand the challenges that investing in a private school education poses for families. We are committed to helping families realize this goal; families who share our values, who will contribute to the fiber of our community and who we feel will thrive in an environment based on RUACH and an individualized approach to learning. We expect all families to contribute at least a minimum amount toward their student’s education. Tuition assistance is available to help bridge the gap between what a family can contribute and the cost of tuition. While our resources will not enable us to meet every family’s full financial needs, we will strive to accommodate each request as best we can.
We are sincerely grateful for all our donors who make our annual allocation a reality. We also appreciate our community partner, Jewish Nevada, whose partnership and financial support are deeply respected and valued.
A tuition assistance award is based on a number of criteria, including but not limited to financial need, academic standing, citizenship and attendance. The process is conducted by a Tuition Assistance Committee under the guidance of the CFO. Please be assured that all information is kept confidential.
Tuition assistance is based in part on the analysis provided by School and Student Services (SSS), a third party which provides an objective recommendation based on the information the family shares in the SSS application. The SSS analysis takes into account many factors, including the family’s income, expenses, assets and liabilities.
(Note: No tuition assistance is available for children entering into our preschool. Financial aid is available for Kindergarten through grade12.)
To begin your Tuition Assistance application, you will need to create an account and submit a SSS’s Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).
The PFS is a comprehensive application that will take some time to complete. Give yourself the time you need by not waiting until the deadline to begin. It will be helpful to have your most recent tax return before beginning the PFS, however, if you do not have your tax return from 2017 completed, please estimate your income from your 2017 Form W-2, 1099, or Business Profit/Loss Statement. We also recommend that you review the wide range of materials that SSS has put together to help families with the financial aid process. They can be found at sssbynais.org/parents
We will communicate our tuition assistance decision to you. To make our decision, we use the information from the PFS as a starting point but also consider our school policy, practices, and available budget. The tuition assistance process is managed separately from the admissions and enrollment processes. It is the responsibility of the family to submit required documents before the deadline. Failure to do so will delay any award offer and may result in the school’s inability to meet your financial needs.
