We recognize the financial investment in a Casady education may be a significant expense for many families. Qualified students should not be deterred from applying to Casady for financial reasons. Through scholarships, payment plans and need-based financial aid, we work toward making a Casady education feasible for highly motivated children throughout the Oklahoma City area.
Financial aid awards typically meet 80 percent of the difference between what a family can afford and the cost of tuition. Financial aid consists of grants that need not be repaid.
Casady respects the freedom and responsibility families have to make choices regarding their financial status. However, if only one parent works outside the home, the Financial Aid Committee must take this into consideration. Casady’s Financial Aid Committee calculates an income for the second parent at the level of minimum wage minus taxes. An exception to this policy might occur if the parent is caring for a pre-school-aged child, a child with a disability, a seriously ill child, parent or grandparent or if there are other special circumstances.
This action will ensure the most effective use of the School’s financial aid budget and help more qualified families afford the cost of a Casady education.
Casady annually awards more than $1.5 million in financial aid to approximately 20 percent of our student population.
