Financial Aid

Stella Academy’s financial aid program will assist parents with financial needs. We use School and Student Services (SSS) to determine financial aid needs. Based on financial information you provide, SSS gives us an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
Complete forms and answer the question on sssbynais.org/parents.
The copies of all documents which support your claims regarding financial aids have to be presented to Stella Academy administration.

Application

We will kindly ask you to complete an online application and submit an annual enrollment fee.

Once the online application has been completed, we will schedule an appointment to assess your child’s current academic level. Please, bring the following documents to the appointment:

  • Child’s birth certificate.
    • Student’s most recent academic records.
    • 3-5 examples of your child’s work in math, writing, and/or art.
    • Results of any assessments that the child may have previously completed elsewhere (Stanford-Binet assessment, Woodcock Johnson, CogAT, Otis-Lennon, and other tests for gifted children.) This requirement is optional.
    • Parent or guardian statement. The parent statement gives us useful insights into the child’s background, learning abilities, and personal priorities.
    • Child’s photo.
