At Bixby School we believe that our community is enriched by families and students from many different backgrounds and therefore a Bixby education should be accessible to as many families as possible. Our goals are to welcome and support qualified students and their families, including those who may not be able to attend our school without tuition support. On average, approximately 20-25% of families receive some form of tuition assistance.
All tuition awards are based on a family’s demonstrated need, and are available to students in our K-5 program. At this time we do not offer financial support to students who are enrolled in our Preschool program. In order to determine a family’s financial need, Bixby School has partnered with FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. This allows FACTS Grant & Aid to provide Bixby School with a Family Contribution Statement that will be used to determine the amount of aid awarded for the upcoming school year. In addition to completing the online application, copies of your family’s income tax returns, W-2s, K-1s and 1099s must be provided to FACTS directly. All information received will be held in strictest of confidence.
Please feel free to contact Megan McGlynn should you have any questions at email@example.com.
We are looking forward to collaborating with you!
Our tuition support application for 2021-2022 school year opens on November 6, 2020. Sign in to FACTS Grant & Aid here.
New and returning families may apply any time after November 6, 2020, however priority will be given to returning families until the re-enrollment deadline on January 15, 2021. The Tuition Support Committee will review new and renewing applications on a weekly basis from November 2020 – March 2021.

What happens if I miss the deadlines?
Unfortunately, you are at a disadvantage if your file is not completed in a timely manner. While we understand that unforeseen circumstances can lead to a delay in submitting and completing your file, we start making awards in early January, prioritizing returning families, and will continue to do so until funds run out. If you do find that your tax return is not complete by mid-March, please turn in your tax return from the previous year as well as your previous year’s W-2s, K-1s and 1099s directly to FACTS Grant & Aid. You will still be asked to turn in your current information, once you have completed the tax return process.
Is there any preference given to certain students and their families?
Priority is given to current families first (this includes families that transition from our Preschool Program to our K-5 Program and thus become eligible to apply), and then new families. Should a family experience unexpected hardship or a change in circumstances, priority may be given to those families with a documented change.
Who makes the final decision about the amount of aid awarded, if any?
At Bixby School we have a Tuition Support Committee in place. All committee members treat this information with the utmost confidentiality.
