Financial Aid

At the Ricks Center, we are committed to serving gifted children from all economic backgrounds.  Offering financial assistance enables Ricks Center to serve a diverse socio-economic student body and assures that the needs of gifted children are met regardless of financial need.

Financial aid at Ricks Center is granted on the basis of demonstrated financial need.  Applying for financial aid does not affect one’s chances for admission at Ricks Center.  Admissions decisions are first made without regard to financial status. Financial assistance is available in several forms, including reduced tuition and alternative payment schedules designed to distribute tuition installments throughout the year.

Financial Aid applications for returning Ricks families for the 2018-2019 school year are due December 8, 2017.

Financial Aid applications for new families for the 2017-2018 school year are due February 12, 2018.
