Financial Aid

Would you like to apply for a scholarship to WCA?

All you have to do is fill out this application, send (mail or scan) in a few pieces of tax information and you should hear back very soon!

We are very excited to offer this system to our community and hope you take advantage of this great opportunity!

Is there a limit of what we allow for income?

No, we go by a case-by-case basis.

Will the $43 fee guarantee an award?

No.  While the payment of $43 does not guarantee an award, we still advise you to apply.  The $43 is the processing fee THAT IS PAID TO FASTAid, NOT TO US.  If you qualify and enroll your child(ren) with us next year, we will take the $43 off your total tuition!

I don’t have access to a computer, can I use my phone or is there a printable copy I can get?

The application is built to work on laptops/computers only, we do not as of yet have a paper version.  While it may work on your phone, there is a possibility it will log you out or quit due to security reasons.  We recommend if you do not have a computer, to apply through your public library’s computer.

What’s the process? How long will this take?

Once you apply, you have 3 weeks post submitted application to send in your tax forms.  Once the taxes are received and verified, we present your application to our School Board and decide on an award amount.  While the system suggests an award amount, the final amount will be approved by our School Board.  It may be for a lesser amount, the recommended amount or a higher amount depending on the case.  There may be a time you will be asked to come in and meet with our administrator to finalize.
