Affording The Oaks

The founders of The Oaks School regarded socioeconomic diversity a core educational value, and we remain committed to providing a range of tuition assistance to families seeking an independent K-6 school education. Keeping The Oaks accessible to a wide cross section of students and families enriches the school 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. This endowment provides a strong foundation to support our goal of keeping our community accessible for years to come.

Support Beyond Tuition

The Oaks realizes that the cost of educating a child at an independent school extends beyond tuition. We want all families to have access to and the ability to participate in all aspects of the community. When a family receives tuition assistance they also receive the following: 

Three (3) free Enrichment Classes

Free Oasis before and after care

Up to 50% off all day Oasis on parent conference days

One (1) Gala/Soirée Ticket at no cost

Up to 50% off the Summer at The Oaks program

How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance Applications are available online (top right) and are due Friday, January 11, 2021.

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 contact the 24-hour call center at (877) 326-FAST (3278).

If you have any tuition assistance questions, please contact us at (323) 850-3755.

Comprehensive Insurance

The Board will set 2021-22 tuition and fees in January of 2021.

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.

Due to the rising cost of K-12 education, The Oaks School hosts this seminar to provide information to families as they consider school choices.  This event is intended for and open to any parent or guardian considering applying to any K-12 independent schools.
