To ensure objectivity, FCDS uses an outside service (School and Student Service) to evaluate applications. Using their assessment and the other materials submitted, the Financial Aid Committee determines how much assistance can be offered to a family based on the School's overall budget. Awards are made to students in good standing based upon the family's financial need. (Please note that SSS will provide you with a copy of their recommendation to FCDS, but you must request it at the time of your application.)

Families are encouraged to apply early. Applications may be submitted to SSS beginning October 24th, 2017 and the deadline is December 31, 2017.

New students' families should complete admissions and financial aid applications concurrently; financial aid applications are considered only after a new student has been accepted.

After returning families' applications are considered, new families' applications are reviewed.

All families receiving aid must re-apply each year.

In separated or divorced families, both parents/guardians must submit applications.

Financial aid is not available for textbooks.

Please contact Jan DiBlasio, Director of Financial Aid, with any questions by email or by calling 336-945-3151 ext 311.
