The FACTS Application window for the 2023-2024 school year will open on Monday, NOVEMBER 21!

For now, here are a few reminders:

  • All families will be able to use the 2021 tax returns to complete the application.

  • The grant/aid application fee, SIS fees and FACTS online enrollment forms are all included in the enrollment processing fee for the 2023-2024 school year.

  • All families meeting the deadline of January 20, 2023 will receive the discounted enrollment processing fee of $150 if the enrollment contract is completed by March 31, 2023.

  • As of April 1, 2023 the enrollment processing fee moves to $225 per family.  On June 1, 2023 the enrollment processing fee becomes $300.  These are non-refundable fees and will NOT be applied to tuition.  (These dates apply to the full completion of the enrollment process.)

  • To be eligible for named scholarships the FACTS Aid and Award application must be submitted by January 20, 2023.

  • The cost to educate a student for 2023-2024 will be:

    • K-5 $6,771

    • 6-12 $8,335

  • Every family that completes the FACTS Aid & Award application will receive some level of assistance based on their individual situation.

  • If you do not wish to request tuition assistance, please notify Shari Brown, Finance Director, at sbrown@gogremlins.com of your intent to enroll.

Please remember that the primary purpose for enrollment early in 2023 is to allow us to be the best possible stewards of the resources we have to effectively educate our students.  We experienced a 9.5% increase in K-12 enrollment this past year and look forward to sustained growth.  With this in mind it is vital that we have a good handle on enrollment numbers prior to completing teacher contracts for the 2023-2024 school year. (This occurs in March each year.)  Salaries and benefits have, by far, the greatest impact on our budget.  Consequently, we need to make sure that our staffing accurately and efficiently meets the needs of our students and families.

This timeline should also help us be proactive when we see that we have teacher needs to fill, allowing us to recruit and attain the best teaching talent possible for our students. We also hope that this helps each of you as you plan for your household budgets moving forward.  As always, it is an honor and a pleasure to serve your family!
