STA APPLICATION INFORMATION

The TCA student tuition aid (STA) program is a needs-based program designed to help families with various levels of need. This year, TCA awarded approximately $1.4 million in student tuition aid. The STA program does not provide full scholarships, as it is healthy for each family to invest in their child’s education. However, the STA program does provide significant scholarships for families with a high level of need.To be considered for Student Tuition Aid, a student must be accepted for admission or currently enrolled at TCA. The STA committee will have two meetings to consider applications: one meeting in mid-February 2021 and a second meeting in mid-April 2021. The following are the deadlines for STA applications to be considered in those meetings:

Meeting #1 – Mid-February 2021

STA application deadline: January 15, 2021
Tax documents deadline: February 5, 2021

Meeting #2 – Mid-April 2021

STA application deadline: February 28, 2021
Tax documents deadline: March 15, 2021

STA GUIDING PRINCIPLES

In considering STA applications, the STA committee strives to obtain the financial “big picture” for each family. As a result, all assets, liabilities, income and discretionary spending is considered to determine the financial need for each applicant. Student Tuition Aid is awarded based upon financial need in accordance with TCA's policies/practices and the amount of available funds. However, poor academic performance or citizenship could be a sufficient reason for not granting tuition aid. STA applicants must provide extensive information on their financial position and spending, including but not limited to:

  • 2020 federal income tax return and related schedules, and Form W-2’s
  • Income for 2020 and projected income for 2021
  • Bank account balances
  • Retirement/401K/IRA balances
  • Home market value and mortgage balance
  • Vehicles make and model and related debt/lease payments
  • Credit card and other debt amounts
  • Amounts spent on discretionary items (e.g. summer camps, sports/music lessons, vacations, country clubs, etc.)
