To be considered for financial aid, the financial aid process must be completed at the time of application.
Enrollment will be accepted upon receipt of the signed contract, along with the selection of a payment plan through the FACTS Management system. Families MUST register with FACTS to set up a tuition payment plan: https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3J5GS

Thornton Academy is committed to enrolling eligible students regardless of family financial resources and offers need-based financial aid to as many qualified students as possible. The number of applications often exceeds the funds available, financial aid awards are competitive, and made to students of proven ability and achievement whose families demonstrate financial need.
Thornton Academy has a Financial Aid Committee that reviews completed applications for financial aid. Grants are based on demonstrated need but the Committee will consider factors such as the student’s character references, academic performance and participation in extracurricular activities when determining the amount of the award.
