For many parents, tuition is higher than can be met reasonably. For that reason, we urge parents who feel that the tuition is beyond their means to apply for tuition assistance. In these challenging times, Ramaz deeply believes that tuition assistance is an essential expression of our values and critical for our families whose circumstances require such assistance.
For NEW families only that are applying to Ramaz Nursery, Pre-K and 9th Grade: If your application for Tuition Assistance is completed by January 15, 2021, we are pleased to guarantee a determination from the Tuition Assistance Committee on February 26, 2021. This is prior to your obligation to enroll at Ramaz by March 4, 2021 (Nursery and Pre-K) and March 2, 2021 (9th Grade). Families interested in assistance must file a Ramaz Tuition Assistance Application together with an online FACTS Grant and Aid Application by April 15, 2021.
Each family must complete both applications.
Tuition Assistance is determined on an annual basis. The program is overseen by the School's Tuition Assistance Committee. Please be assured that all tuition assistance information is kept in the strictest of confidence. For more information or for questions, please email email@example.com.
Guidelines for Tuition Assistance (2021-2022)
In order to assist in helping us decide how best to allocate tuition assistance to families, we use the FACTS Grants & Aid Assessment division ("FACTS") of the FACTS Management Company to collect financial and tax information. FACTS performs an analysis and provides recommendations to the Ramaz Tuition Assistance Committee (the "Committee") for its review. The Committee, also using the Ramaz Tuition Assistance Application and documentation, will then make its final decision on determining what the family can afford to pay for tuition and fees.
Therefore, in order to apply for tuition assistance, each family must complete a FACTS and a Ramaz application as outlined below.
The determination by the tuition assistance Committee of what a family can afford to pay cannot be completed until all of the required documentation is received. In order to allow sufficient time to give each application enough attention, we ask that you complete your applications by April 15, 2021.
- If you are interested in seeing what the FACTS Grant & Aid application looks like, check out the FACTS Sample Application. [This is only a sample and cannot be used for your actual application.]
- Once you have had a chance to familiarize yourself with the form and want to proceed, please go to the
FACTS website. This will bring you to the "FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment" area of the FACTS website. Follow the directions.
- Fax or email all tax documents requested by FACTS directly to them. Note that faxed or emailed documents are available to us immediately. Sending documents via regular mail adds to the time required to process your application.
- You can check the status of your application at the
FACTS website. If FACTS sends you a follow-up email, please respond directly to them as quickly as possible.
If you have any questions regarding the FACTS application, you may call:
FACTS Customer Care Representative
- Print out and complete the following 2 forms:
Take care not to leave any blank spaces (enter "Zero" if no other entry is appropriate).
Please sign and date the forms where indicated.
Please enclose all required documents.
- Return the application to:
Ramaz School Tuition Assistance Office
60 East 78th Street
New York, NY 10075
Be sure to mark the envelope "Attention: Tuition Assistance."
If you have any questions concerning the Ramaz Tuition Assistance application or the Tuition Assistance process, please contact the Tuition Assistance office at 212-774-8035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be assured that all tuition assistance information is kept in the strictest of confidence.
Once both the FACTS application and the Ramaz Application are completed, the Committee will meet and determine what your net tuition and fees will be. You will then receive an email advising you of the amount of net tuition and fees to be paid for the 2020-2021 academic year.
We will be happy to meet with families who request an opportunity to speak directly with our Committee representatives. Ramaz deeply believes that tuition assistance is an essential expression of our values and critical for our families whose circumstances require such assistance.
