Commission Leadership Academy makes use of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help us evaluate requests for financial aid. CLA may have limited funding available to provide financial assistance to families within our community, but these funds vary from year to year.  Financial aid applications are open each year from February 1 – April 1 for the following school year.  New families must complete a student application and offered acceptance before being considered for financial assistance. Submitting an application does not guarantee financial aid. The application process requires the submission of detailed financial information, including a copy of the most recent tax forms. There is an application fee charged by FACTS.


Please see the Admissions Coordinator for a link for the FACTS Link. 


Any financial assistance granted by CLA is awarded to students of any race, color, gender, national and ethnic origin.  If you already have a FACTS account to pay tuition, you will use the same login information.  The Commission Leadership Academy Board of Directors uses this information to determine the financial aid awards.
