Tuition Assistance

We are dedicated to making a Turning Point School education affordable to all qualified students without regard to financial ability. Tuition assistance is available to qualified students that would not be able to attend without this support. It is determined by evaluating a family's ability to contribute to their child's educational costs, and uses information that includes the family's household income, their tax returns, and personal statement, among other factors.

The Tuition Assistance Committee reviews each family’s application and allocates tuition assistance with a goal of assisting families in paying what they can afford. We cannot guarantee that all who apply will qualify, or that our budget will meet the needs of everyone. However, we encourage all new and returning families who will need assistance to apply.

Applications for tuition assistance for new and returning families are available through ISM FAST. Families must apply by the January 22, 2018 deadline for consideration. For additional information, please contact Steve Tolbert, Chief Financial Officer, at (310) 841-2505 x127.
