Tuition Assistance Information
Wornick is proud to be able to offer Tuition Assistance to families who would otherwise be unable to pay full tuition. Awards are decided anonymously by a committee comprised of finance professionals and community members. The Tuition Assistance Committee uses the services of Independent School Management’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) as a tool to help effectively determine each family’s needs. Awards are based solely upon a family’s financial resources.
Assistance requests submitted after the deadline of February 13, 2017 will be considered on the basis of remaining funds available.
All information from FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family’s tuition request. To ease the online application process, you may begin an application, save it and go back to it at a later time. FAST provides a 24/7 help desk to answer all application questions.
As part of the application process, FAST performs an income verification. You must use the online self-guided FAST application, and then you will mail tax and other related financial documents to FAST. FAST increases the efficiency of the application process by converting your submitted tax documents into electronic format.
After completing an online application, you will receive an email from FAST with a list of documents to mail. Please be prepared to submit your 2016 Federal Tax returns, 2016 W-2s, 2016 1099s and your most current pay stubs. Please mail these documents to the FAST address below. Please do not send any originals, and do not fax or email any documents.

There is a $43 non-refundable Tuition Assistance application fee, payable by Visa, MasterCard or American Express at the end of the application. It will be billed to your credit card under the name of “Independent School Management (ISM).”
The Tuition Assistance Committee will meet in February to review applications from both current Wornick families and new families. Families will be notified of the Tuition Assistance determination at the time they receive notification regarding the student’s admission status. Notifications will be mailed on March 15, 2017 and emailed on March 16, 2017.
