Financial aid is available to O’Neal students who are currently enrolled and to new students to whom enrollment has been offered. The Financial Aid process is separate from the Admissions process, but we recommend prospective families submit both the Admissions Application(s) and the Financial Aid application at the same time. While Admissions Applications are done per-student, Financial Aid applications are done per-family. Both Admissions and Financial Aid applications are submitted through TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services).
TADS reviews each Financial Aid application and requests supporting documentation from families as necessary. Considerations may include but are not limited to: Taxable and non-taxable income, savings, assets, liabilities, family size, number of students in tuition charging schools, as well as any special circumstances. Much of the information requested is found on a family’s 1040 IRS form.
TADS provides the O’Neal Financial Aid Committee with a recommendation on aid allocation. The Financial Aid Committee uses these recommendations in their decision-making process. Please note that Financial Aid applicants must have completed the Admissions process, received an enrollment contract/tuition agreement, and paid a 10% enrollment deposit before their Financial Aid application can be processed by the Financial Aid Committee.
The deadline for first-round financial aid consideration is March 15, 2020. Financial aid recipients begin to be notified in late March. All remaining financial aid awards are distributed on a rolling basis.
All inquiries and applications for financial aid and knowledge thereof are to be held in the strictest confidence.

Please note: First consideration is given to current families already receiving financial aid and to current families applying for the first time. Grants continue to be awarded until all funds are depleted. In cases of divorce, O’Neal requires that both parents file financial aid forms, in order to provide the Financial Aid Committee with a full picture of family resources.
