Financial Aid Information
SciTech STEM Discovery Academy is committed to preparing students for success in a diverse and changing world. We seek to offer our students a learning environment that is representative of our community: socially, culturally and economically. SSDA strives to maintain a student population that represents the diverse socio-economic backgrounds of our community. Toward that end, the purpose of SSDA’s financial aid program is to provide financial assistance to families for whom, without such assistance, an SSDA education would not be an option.
Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of a family’s financial need. A variety of criteria are considered, including income (taxable and nontaxable), assets, number of dependents, age of parents, number of children attending tuition-based schools, number of parents who are working, etc. This information is balanced with data about living expenses, medical costs and other factors such as child support and legal expenses.
All financial aid application information, including requested supporting documentation, should be submitted to SSDA via mail along with application and enrollment fee.
