We encourage families to apply for need-based assistance to be used towards annual tuition costs.  An application for assistance does not affect your re-enrollment or the admission process.  CAK does not award academic or athletic scholarships.

CAK uses the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to analyze each application, which includes a recommendation of what a family can reasonably contribute toward tuition. 

  • Tuition Assistance will not be considered for a student unless an application for admission has been submitted.

  • Financial aid decisions are made separately from admission decisions.

  • Current families must be in good financial standing and the student be eligible to re-enroll.

  • A new application must be submitted every year as tuition assistance is not guaranteed in subsequent years. However, the Financial Aid Committee will work with parents who have followed the guidelines and submitted the necessary information in a timely fashion.

  • All information from FACTS is kept confidential.  After completing the online application you will be required to submit your 2017 Federal tax information/documents including, but not limited to, tax returns, W-2 forms, along with all schedules.  Awards will not be considered until applications are verified by FACTS; therefore, delay in submitting documents could result in forfeiture of award consideration.

  • Applications must be filled out online beginning December 15, 2018 through February 16, 2019.  Availability of tuition assistance diminishes greatly for applications received after January 1st.

  • The charge for the application is $35.00 and is paid by credit card directly to FACTS at the time you submit your assistance application.

  • The Financial Aid Committee reviews each case individually, awarding aid on the basis of demonstrated need. A wide range of families with a variety of circumstances qualifies for tuition assistance.  Many factors are evaluated, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family.  Decisions for tuition assistance will be made once all information and tax information has been verified by FACTS, typically within one week of FACTS verification.

  • CAK may not be able to meet 100% of the demonstrated need for each applicant, and the number of qualified applicants may exceed the tuition assistance resources available. A student may be admitted to CAK, but placed on a waiting list for tuition assistance.  It is to your advantage to be proactive and submit your application early.
