Who Should Apply?
We value a diverse school community that has always included students from a variety of economic backgrounds. Tuition Assistance Program awardees include families earning a middle income, relatively high-income families with multiple children in private schools, and even a small number of outstanding students whose financial circumstance qualifies them for grants of 50% or more.
Be assured that the Admissions Office is committed to a process that is personalized, responsive, equitable, and user-friendly. The personal touch is a hallmark of the Falmouth Academy experience in all areas of the life of the school, and we are confident that applicants will find this to be true of our Tuition Assistance Program.
Families interested in the Tuition Assistance Program submit information about their financial resources to School & Student Services (SSS) and we use standard criteria to evaluate a family's ability to pay tuition. While it is difficult to define a "typical" award candidate, common factors include income level, number of children in a family, and lifestyle choices.
