Affording Fuqua School

Fuqua School recognizes that the decision to enroll your child is an investment in your child’s future. We work closely with each family to make a Fuqua School education a reality for your child, with financial assistance packages tailored to each family’s unique financial situation. Several of these methods are outlined here. We look forward to partnering with your family.

Need-Based Assistance

Fuqua School offers need-based financial assistance for qualified students. In an effort to be fair and equitable in the granting of these funds, all interested applicants must complete a Student Aid Form which can be obtained through FACTS. This form, along with the most recent copy of your tax return and a small fee, is submitted directly to FACTS.

The analysis provided by FACTS helps guide the School’s Financial Assistance Committee in evaluating need, although it is not the sole determining factor. Fuqua School does not discriminate in the administration of financial assistance. Since requests may exceed funds available, it is important to apply early. All financial aid applications are confidential.

Renewable scholarships up to $6,500 are available for qualifying PK through1st grade students and students and students transferring from public schools. These scholarships are provided by a network of foundations.

Fuqua School, under its governing body, the Rural Education Foundation is part of a network of three education foundations, including the Fishburne-Hudgins Educational Foundation and the North Cross School Foundation, that offer state approved Education Improvement Scholarships through the Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credit Program. This network offers qualified students partial scholarships to Fishburne Military Academy, Fuqua School, and North Cross School, three Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS) accredited college preparatory schools serving rural Southside, Southwest, and Western Virginia. The broad geography of this scholarship foundation network encompasses some of the most socio-economically challenged regions of Virginia. The intent of this collaboration is to channel scholarships to students in the most underserved areas of the state, thus making an independent school college preparatory education more accessible to the most at-risk young people in Virginia.
