Financial Aid

Orme has a rolling admissions process. Families should understand that financial aid is awarded on a first come-first served basis.

Domestic Applicants

The Parents’ Financial Statement should be submitted online to the School & Student Services (SSS) by NAIS. Parents’ Financial Statement for custodial parent(s), parents who are separated or divorced, have never been married or for non-custodial parent(s) submitted online directly to SSS by NAIS. In cases of divorce or separation, both parents must submit all required forms. The family’s ability to contribute is based on both parents’ income and assets. 

International Applicants

The International Financial Aid application should be completed and submitted along with certified copies of your bank and income statements. Completed packets can be sent to admissions@ormeschool.org.

Letter of Request

We at Orme know that affording boarding school can be challenging. A letter of request or a one-on one-call with our team, is your best opportunity to explain your real life circumstances. Please e-mail admissions@ormeschool.org, or call (928) 632-7601.

Orme School Code: 5578

 

Arizona Resident Students

There are two main scholarships for private schools in Arizona: ESA and STOs. Both are explained below. Note that a child cannot receive funding from both ESA and an STO in the same school year. Our admissions team can help you decide which would be the best fit for your family.

ESA
The Empowerment Scholarship Account Program (ESA) is funded by the State of Arizona to help parents pay for private school tuition. Arizona resident students are eligible to apply for a voucher through this program.

STOs
Student Tuition Organizations (STOs) receive tax credit donations from individuals and corporations to support scholarships for eligible students to cover private school tuition costs.

All students are eligible for the original Tax-Credit Scholarship, but they might also qualify for other categories for additional funds. The categories are described below.

Orme has partnered with the following STOs, and all Arizona resident applicants are encouraged to apply to each of these:
