Financial Aid Information

American Renaissance Academy (ARA) is committed to providing need-based financial aid to families who have clearly demonstrated financial need. The opportunity for qualified students to attend ARA should not be limited to family financial circumstances. Financial need is determined by taking into account many factors including income, net worth, standard living expenses, family size, and the number of children attending tuition-charging schools. Financial aid is awarded on a first-come first-served basis.

Aid is awarded by the Financial Aid Committee and is granted to students who demonstrate financial need and maintain a satisfactory school record of grades and citizenship. Aid is granted for a period of one year and is based on current information; changes in a family’s situation may change the amount awarded from year to year. The Financial Aid Committee reserves the right to make grants as it sees fit within the existing resources after all applications are reviewed.

Families may apply for financial aid at the Academy through the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program. Families must apply annually for financial aid consideration.

Financial institutions such as Hickam Federal Credit Union also offer low interest Education Loans. Click here for more information.
