Office of Admission & Financial Aid
We hear this question often from prospective parents, as we begin the conversations about the admission process. It is usually one of the very first topics we discuss. The Ascension answer to affordability and an investment in your child’s future is Customized Tuition. Customized Tuition is the way many of our families make an Ascension education possible for their children, even if they have never required financial assistance in other decisions for their family. To put this in perspective, 41% of our current families utilize Customized Tuition at various levels.
Having conversations about financial needs and family circumstances is not always easy and each family is unique. At Ascension, confidentiality is a priority, and we value the relationships we build in the admission process. If a family is interested in Ascension for their child, we are committed to working with each family individually and confidentially to make the Ascension Difference a real possibility for each mission-appropriate student.
The admission process and a Customized Tuition application are separate but work in tandem so that we can work on both aspects of admission and affordability to allow the school and our prospective families to work together toward acceptance and a financial plan. The Customized Tuition application is the key to beginning this process. The online application is easy to complete, and we are always available to answer questions, help with required financial documents, and support families through the application process. The end result is an internal review of each application and a Customized Tuition offer extended to the family for the upcoming academic year. Customized Tuition applications are completed annually so that changes in financial circumstances for each family may be considered on a yearly basis.
Regardless of tuition levels, Ascension offers several payment options for tuition. Payments may be made annually, semi-annually, or monthly over an 11-month period beginning in July and ending in May for the current academic year.
