Tuition, Financial Aid, and Affordability

A strong financial aid program supports Chase Collegiate’s commitment to enrolling mission appropriate students in student body. Qualified, motivated students are encouraged to apply to Chase Collegiate irrespective of financial need.   During the 2018-19 school year, approximately 43% of students received some level of tuition assistance.

Grants are awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Financial aid is available to students in K through Grade 12. Once a financial aid commitment is made to a family, continuing assistance can be anticipated as long as financial need continues to be demonstrated.

The financial aid program at Chase Collegiate is need-based. When the family of an accepted student demonstrates financial need, the school makes every effort to help offset the cost of a Chase Collegiate education according to that family's particular need. Aid decisions are guided by financial data submitted to School and Student Services by Community Brands and by review of the application data by Chase Collegiate’s Financial Aid Committee.
