Families seeking tuition assistance must fill out a tuition assistance form after completing the application and enrollment process. To apply for tuition assistance, you will need to complete an application through your students TADS enrollment database. Applicant needs are determined by an independent organization, which examines a number of different factors and makes recommendations to SJB based upon analysis results.
These applications should be completed by March 15th. Please note that to be considered for the AIM Higher grants of $1,000 your application must be completed by February 20th. AIM Higher uses the same Tads application, so to be considered, you merely need to indicate your request by checking the box as part of the application process.
The Pioneer Foundation is another option to help parents fund school tuition. (Some families receive entirely-funded annual tuition in this way.) Family members work at concession stands at various metro sporting venues (Target Field, the Excel Center, etc.) and are paid a rate + commission, with the dollars directed to the school for tuition.
