Science & Arts Academy

Science & Arts Academy has partnered with FACTS to provide one convenient platform for Need-Based Scholarship applications and tuition payment plans.  

Need-Based Scholarship Applications 

Available to applicants and enrolled families

Any family with concerns about their ability to afford an SAA education may apply for a need-based scholarship. Multiple factors are considered by FACTS when evaluating a family’s ability to pay, including but not limited to, household income, family size, expenses, assets, and liabilities. Families must reapply each year and awards may vary from year to year depending on changes in the family’s financial situation.

The need-based scholarship priority deadline is January 31 for returning families and February 15 for new families. Applications will continue to be accepted beyond the priority deadlines as funds remain available.​

Notification of award decisions for returning families will be communicated in re-enrollment information. Notification of award decisions for new families will be communicated with the admissions offer. Applying for a need-based scholarship does not influence the admission decision. 

Tuition Payment Plans

Available to enrolled families

Enrolling in a FACTS tuition payment plan allows families to select a payment option that best suits individual financial needs. Payment options, as outlined below, are subject to change depending on enrollment date. Payment methods include credit card*, check, and automatic bank draft.    

Monthly: Due June 1 - March 1; 4% finance charge

Quarterly: Due June 1, Sept. 1, Dec. 1, and March 1; 3% finance charge

Semi-Annual: Due June 1 and Dec. 1; 2.5% finance charge

One Payment: Due June 1; no finance charge

*Payments made through a credit card are assessed a 2.95% processing fee.  

All families are required to have a FACTS account in order to be invoiced for tuition.  New families should create a new account.  Returning families should log in to the existing account and confirm preferred method of payment. The payment plan as selected in the Enrollment Form will be set up in FACTS for billing, unless the business office is notified of a change.
