FAQS

 

Q. Why do I have to submit my 2020 tax and income information on my 2022–23 FACTS application?

A. This is advantageous for our families because it eliminates estimating income and tax information before taxes are filed, and enables families to submit a FACTS application as early as December of the year before attending school.

 

Q. Do you offer financial aid?

A. More than half of our families qualify for Ezra Academy’s need-based flexible tuition.  Flexible tuition is generally calculated as the difference between what it costs a student to attend Ezra and what a family can afford to pay. There is no “income cutoff” and the Tuition Committee reviews each application carefully and anonymously to determine whether a family will qualify. We encourage you to begin the admissions application process and apply for flexible tution at the same time.

 

Q. Who should I contact with questions about Flexible Tuition?

A. You can contact Laura Gabor, Business Manager, or Jessica Khazak, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Enrollment at businessoffice@ezraacademyct.org or 203-389-5500.

 

Q. What supporting documentation is needed to apply for Flexible Tuition?

A. Returning families and sibling applicants must submit the following documentation by December 23rd. New applicants must submit the documentation by January 25th.

  1. The FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Application https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3JNL0
  2. A copy of your 2020 filed income *tax return and W-2 forms (or other relevant tax documents)
  3. Supporting tax return schedules
  4. Explanatory letter or statement in support of your application
    • Example: 1099 forms, social security, welfare, food stamps, unemployment, child support, workers compensation, veteran benefits, rental income, etc.

 

Q:  My spouse and I are divorced. Do we both need to complete the FACTS forms?

A:  Yes, all parents/legal guardians must complete a FACTS application and submit the requested tax documentation. The Tuition Committee calculates need based upon both parents and their spouse’s ability to contribute to the child’s education.

 

Q: What if my financial position changes during the school year?

A: Flexible tuition is awarded in a single year; families are asked to complete the FACTS application and provide supporting documentation each year. Assuming a family’s circumstances remain unchanged, every effort will be made to continue supporting that family at a level consistent with the prior year. If a family’s financial situation improves, the annual award will be adjusted to reflect the positive gain. If a parent loses his/her job, the annual award will be adjusted to reflect the loss of income. Please notify the Business Office of any gains or losses in income.
