Tuition and Financial Aid Information

Applications for Fall 2017 financial aid are now being accepted.

The Oak Arbor School seeks to serve a broad base of students with its distinctive Christian education. Our tuition rate is competitive with other parochial schools in the area. If a family has a sincere desire to have their child attend Oak Arbor School, we will do all we can to make that happen!

Therefore we offer a need-based financial aid program in the form of tuition grants, loans and/or custom payment plans.
Oak Arbor School will be using Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) as our financial aid assessment for the coming school year.

In determining tuition assistance, TADS will process each family’s application individually and confidentially. There are no income floors or ceilings to qualify for tuition assistance. Rather tuition assistance takes into account multiple actors including home equity, second home ownership, consumer debt, number of children attending tuition charging institutions and more. It is important that all families feel free to inquire about and request tuition assistance for any reason. Requests for tuition assistance are kept strictly confidential, as is any information provided.



The Oak Arbor School does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, gender or national or ethnic origin.
