It is the policy of New Horizon School (NHS) to give financial aid grants to student households who otherwise could not afford to send a student to NHS. The purpose of this policy is to promote the economic diversity of the student body and to meet enrollment goals.
Procedures: Financial aid grants are to be paid out of monies set aside for that purpose by the Board as part of the operating budget, by solicitation of restricted gifts, or by revenues generated by an endowment fund set up specifically for that purpose. Distribution of financial aid will be determined by the Administrator/CEO or Designee.
