Financial Aid

We are committed to being a socioeconomically diverse school community. Families are granted financial assistance based on demonstrated need and availability of scholarship funds. Families receiving financial assistance are not obligated to repay these grants to the school.

We encourage all families to carefully evaluate their ability to pay tuition, and we expect families to contribute to the educational cost at the highest possible level given their economic situation. Currently, more than one-third of Heilicher families receive some degree of financial assistance.

Financial assistance requests are processed by a third-party service called Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). All personal information is held in strictest confidence by Heilicher personnel. An application for tuition assistance will not prejudice an application for admission. If you are interested in receiving information regarding financial aid, please request this information when filling out an admissions application.

Families are encouraged to complete the TADS worksheet before completing the financial aid application. The worksheet will assist you in gathering all necessary paperwork before filling out the online application.
