Tuition and Financial Aid | Financial Aid

The ANC Secondary Schools offer need-based financial aid to admitted students who demonstrate a need for assistance with the cost of attendance. We use TADS (www.TADS.com) for financial aid management.

Process for applying for financial aid:

  1. Complete the TADS application form online at www.TADS.com. There is a processing fee of $34.00 per family. ANC partners with Bryn Athyn Church School in using TADS. For families with children at both BACS and ANC, information and the fee will be shared with both schools.
  2. In cases of divorced or separated parents, ANC requires that both parents file financial aid applications in order to provide the Financial Aid Committee with a full picture of potential family resources.
  3. After applying online, please fax required tax information (Completed 1040 Tax Returns and W-2 Statements) to TADS at 612-548-3326 or call TADS parent helpline at 1-800-884-8237.

The deadline for first round financial aid consideration is April 15. Based on the information you provide to TADS, TADS will make a recommendation to ANC’s Financial Aid Committee as to your specific needs. Financial aid awards are distributed on a rolling basis. First consideration is given to current ANC families already receiving financial aid and to current ANC families applying for the first time. Our Financial Aid Funds are limited, but we try to award up to 100% of need for families that apply prior to the deadline. Applications received after the deadline will receive reduced percentage awards or no award based on available funds, application date, and other contributing factors. Awards are not guaranteed from one year to the next; families must apply each year for continued assistance with returning students.

All inquiries and applications for financial aid are held in the strictest confidence between TADS and the ANC Financial Aid Office. No information is released to any persons beyond those staff members directly involved in distributing and accounting for financial aid.

If your family does not quality for financial aid, there are still options to help you afford an ANC education. For more information contact Denise DiFiglia, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, at denise.difiglia@ancss.org or 267-502-4855.

Tuition Prepayment Certificates

Tuition Prepayment Certificates (TPCs) can help you get an early start on saving for a child's education at the ANC Secondary Schools. The plan allows parents, grandparents and others to prepay tuition costs for prospective ANC students. TPCs earn 10% tax-deferred simple interest each year for up to 14 years.

When the student enrolls at the ANC, TPCs can be redeemed at face value plus accumulated interest as a payment towards tuition, comprehensive fees, or room & board. TPCs may be used both at the Secondary Schools and at Bryn Athyn College. If the student for whom the TPC was purchased does not attend a qualifying school, certificates may be transferred to another family member.
