Financial Aid

Financial Aid

We encourage families to apply for admission regardless of financial circumstances. Headwaters School believes socioeconomic diversity enriches the educational experience for all of its students and is committed to offering a robust need-based financial assistance program. Every family is expected to contribute to the cost of their child’s education to the extent they are able; need-based grants are available to help bridge the gap and offset the cost of tuition, as well as supplies and extracurricular activities. Applicants must apply annually so that financial resources can be independently verified. Please note that though we make every attempt to meet a family’s need, we cannot offer awards to all applicants.

Headwaters School uses ISM’s FAST software for gathering and compiling financial information and estimating family need. The financial aid committee uses the information in the software and the software’s recommended award in determining awards. Please note that the family is responsible for paying a fee of $43 for the software. This fee must be paid through the FAST system before the application is submitted. For more information, please see the ISM website at this link.

  • PACT Scholarship

    Headwaters School is excited to bring a new scholarship opportunity to a high school student of color from the Austin area. The ideal candidate is seeking admission for 9th grade, and identifies as Black or Latinx. The scholarship will be maintained for the full four years of high school, or for the remaining years of high school if a scholarship recipient does not begin their attendance in 9th grade, as long as the student remains in good academic and disciplinary standing. The student will also be expected to engage in extracurricular programs at Headwaters, through clubs, athletics, academic teams, or student leadership groups.
