FINANCIAL AID

Flint River Academy seeks to create a challenging and supportive learning environment that encourages high expectations for success and academic excellence through development of the mind, body, and spirit.

We understand the financial commitment that a family makes when they choose private education. A limited amount of financial assistance is available for qualifying applicants as long as funds are available. Financial Aid recommendations are made by FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, an independent company which provides us with a confidential financial needs report. This report assists the Scholarship Committee in determining the amount of tuition assistance granted. Assistance provides up to 50% of tuition and does not cover any fees.

Most of the financial aid available to students is provided through donations to Apogee, one of the Student Scholarship Organizations approved by the State of Georgia. Through this program, Georgia taxpayers can redirect a portion of their Georgia Income Tax dollars to eligible Georgia private schools.

Our desire is to have financial aid available to all families with financial need. Flint River Academy welcomes donations of any amount to our unrestricted scholarship fund. Your gift would be tax deductible and make a tremendous impact on a student’s life.
