Scholarship Program Information

2018-19 Scholarship Application


What tuition assistance is available?

  • We keep tuition as low as possible but know that the full cost may be out of reach for some families.
  • We offer need-based scholarships to 12-15% of our families.
  • Funds may be available for new families or emergencies.
  • Our goal is to eventually offer tuition assistance to all those who would like to enroll at Schaeffer but need additional resources. 

How do I apply?

  • School families can apply each year between April 15-30. 
  • Application includes a full financial statement, similar to what colleges require for financial aid.

Are there merit scholarships?

  • The Jason Kelly Award is given to two students each year. The Jason Kelly Award, Schaeffer's highest honor, recognizes Christian character and academic achievement. It includes a $500 tuition stipend. Students are nominated by teachers and must have been continuously enrolled at Schaeffer Academy for at least one full school year.


  • For questions about emergency or new family tuition assistance outside of the April application period, or questions in general about tuition assistance, please contact Jill Wirth, Registrar, at 507-286-1050.
