A Riverside School education is one of the best investments parents can make on behalf of their child, and we realize that with it comes a significant financial commitment. However, we are committed to providing options for families to make the possibility of attending Riverside School a reality.

Tuition Payments
Tuition payments to Riverside School are made through FACTS, a tuition management service.  All Riverside families will establish a FACTS account and choose a payment option which best meets their needs.

Tuition payment options include:

  1. Pay 100% of the tuition and applicable fees via FACTS in August of 2016.
  2. Make two payments via FACTS. First payment is due in August of 2016; second payment is due in January of 2017.
  3. Make ten monthly payments via FACTS, starting in August of 2016 and ending in May of 2017.

All payments will be made through electronic fund transfer through your savings or checking account or by credit card (MC, Discover, or AMEX. VISA is not accepted).

Financial Aid
The Annual Fund helps to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating each student and the tuition charged. There is also limited financial aid available and partial tuition awards are determined based on need.  Riverside School uses the FACTS Financial Aid service to make an unbiased determination of a family’s need.  The deadline for applying for financial aid is August 1, 2016 for the 2016- 2017 school year.

In addition to Riverside’s Financial Aid, Riverside is a parent of the Great Aspirations Scholarship Program (GRASP). Families that meet certain income criteria and that are applying to Riverside from a public school with an IEP, can apply through GRASP for additional financial assistance. For more information, please contact eharvey@riversideschool.org or visit GRASP website.

Education loans or scholarships from church related opportunities, community service organizations, or philanthropic foundations may be available. You may also apply for a fixed-rate education loan through www.yourtuitionsolution.com or through www.salliemae.com.
