Many of our families benefit from grants, tuition assistance, and other options to make Crosland affordable. The John Crosland School uses Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) as a guideline for determining the need of families for tuition assistance. FAST operates a central processing system for computing family contribution for educational expenses. The John Crosland School is then provided with information and guidelines for making tuition assistance awards fairly and equitably on the basis of need. Financial information is held in strictest confidence. A family’s need for tuition assistance is re-evaluated each year.

“Tuition assistance has provided the ability for our children to have a top notch education that supports their unique learning needs. Without this support it would not be possible. Our family lives by Nelson Mandela’s quote “education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” We are excited that our children are receiving education tailored just for them so that they can change the world.”
