Tuition Assistance

Every effort is made to assist families who need financial assistance for tuition payments. Funds for tuition assistance are limited and are awarded on the basis of determined financial need.

Financial aid recommendations are made by the Financial Aid Committee which uses a third-party source that provides the School with a confidential financial needs-analysis report. School & Student Services (SSS) provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from SSS are used by the Financial Aid Committee in accordance with the school’s policies to determine the award amount.

Receipt of your financial aid application (School ID 4380) by February 28, 2023 will ensure priority consideration for financial assistance. Consideration for financial assistance is given only after a student is accepted for admission to The Cottage School.

The Cottage School accepts students who are eligible for and receive payments from the Georgia Department of Education through the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Program.  This program is also referred to as SB-10 (Senate Bill 10).

  • SB-10 funds are paid to the family of the student receiving the scholarship in four equal payments throughout the year.
  • Checks are mailed to the school in October, December, February, and May.
  • Checks are made payable to both the parent/guardian and to the school so therefore must be endorsed by both.
  • Checks are not permitted to leave the school campus, so an email from the Business Office will be sent informing the family of the check’s arrival at the school.
  • There is a 30 day period to have checks endorsed or they will be returned to the state.
  • The Cottage School does not reduce the amount of annual tuition by the anticipated amount of SB-10 funds to be received throughout the year

Once the check is endorsed, a family will have three options available to them:

  1. The check will be applied against an open balance on the account
  2. The check will be applied to the family account and left available for upcoming or future tuition and/or fees
  3. If the account is paid current, the amount of the check (or credit balance) may be refunded via check to the family
