Affording The Oaks
The founders of The Oaks School regarded socio-economic diversity a core educational value, and we remain committed to providing a range of tuition assistance to families seeking an independent school education. Keeping The Oaks accessible to a wide cross section of students and families enriches the learning and living environment for all students. We are able to offer qualifying families in need a variety of tuition assistance plans ranging from a few thousand dollars to almost full tuition.
The Char Sadler Financial Aid Endowment has been established to begin growing an on-going funding source for tuition assistance. The Endowment provides a strong foundation to support our goal of keeping our community accessible for years to come.
Tuition Assistance Applications will open on October 1, 2018 and are due Friday, January 25, 2019.
The Oaks School processes online tuition assistance applications through FAST (Financial Aid For School Tuition), a third-party service that offers families a secure online application system. Information that is entered into FAST is shared confidentially with The Oaks financial committee.
Completing an application for tuition assistance can be a time-consuming process. We encourage you to start early, take a look at the FAST user guide and worksheet and compile your financial statements before starting the online application.
The application process is self-guided and you may edit your application before submitting it. For assistance in completing the application, please call the 24-hour call center at (877) 326-FAST (3278).
If you have any tuition assistance questions, please contact us at (323) 850-3755.

The Board of Trustees wants all families to be aware that tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student at The Oaks. If it were not for contributions to The Oaks Fund and other non-tuition income, tuition and fees would be significantly higher. Therefore, your continued support of the school's fundraising efforts is greatly appreciated.
