Need-Based Financial Aid 

Oak Crest Private School offers need-based financial aid. The application is submitted to ISM FAST, an independent outside company, that evaluates the difference between what the school charges and what a family can reasonably afford to pay.

Before a student can be considered for financial aid, he or she would need to apply at and be accepted by Oak Crest Private School. ISM FAST will use a family's most recent tax return as well as additional information, similar to what might be gathered to file taxes. The link to apply is:  http://tinyurl.com/OCPSFinancialAid. Once all necessary documents have been uploaded, ISM FAST evaluates what it has received and then sends their recommendations regarding financial aid awards to the school. Financial aid award decisions are first come first served and are based upon qualifications and availability.

Applications for financial aid are required annually.
