Oak Hill Tuition Assistance Program

Oak Hill Academy Tuition Assistance 2024-2025

Oak Hill Academy has established a tuition assistance program to assist families of qualified children meet the cost of an OHA education.  The school gives tuition assistance to help maintain a diverse socioeconomic and multicultural student population.  It also serves to help prevent the loss of current students because of rising tuition and/or families’ financial difficulties. Our goal is to enrich the learning and living environment for all our students.  Every student and his/her family bring a special set of gifts to contribute to the mosaic of the school community.

  • Programs
    Tuition assistance will be available to qualifying families, regardless of the number of children they have enrolled at OHA.  Application is made through Blackbaud Financial Aid Management.  Tuition assistance is limited and awards will be based on the total amount of tuition assistance available from OHA, as well as the number of qualified applicants. In addition, awards will be considered based on the date of application until the Tuition Assistance budget has been exhausted.  During the 2023-2024 school year, 21% of our students received some level of tuition assistance.  Oak Hill Academy is not able to offer full tuition assistance to any student at this time.
  • Procedure
    Overview:  Parents must fill out an application online and submit certain income and tax information.  This application asks several detailed questions about your family’s income and expenses.  Based on the financial information you provide, Blackbaud Financial Aid Management will provide the school with an estimated amount that your family can contribute to educational expenses.  This helps schools make fair and objective tuition assistance decisions. Parents are advised to follow deadline dates.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    A: Whomever the child resides with should complete this application whether it is a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, or legal guardian. There is a section within the application where you can enter contributions from non-custodial parents and relatives.

    • Q: Why do I need to input my spouse’s information if I am remarried and they are not legally responsible for my children?

    A: Blackbaud Financial Aid’s calculation works off of the total household income, therefore including all income, whether the party is legally responsible for your children or not. Our system, however, does take into effect your spouse’s expenses as well as their income. It is important to list all expenses that are asked of within the application.

    • Q: I do not have the required tax documents. HELP!

    A: Include the most recent tax documentation you have available. If you are asked for a specific line from a tax document that you have not yet completed, please estimate the projected amount.

    • Q: How will I know if I qualify for aid or not?

    A: Blackbaud Financial Aid does not disclose information about the results of your application.

It is the school’s policy to keep all tuition assistance information confidential. The school requests that families receiving tuition assistance also keep this information confidential in order to protect individual privacy.
