At USJ, we realize that choosing an independent school education is a commitment and a substantial investment for your child’s future. We strive to meet the financial need of all of our students, and because of that, we offer a need-based financial aid policy. Need-based aid is the difference between what it costs to attend USJ and the family’s ability to pay. While we attempt to meet a percentage of need, no child receives a full tuition.
Our Financial Aid Committee uses FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment (FACTS) to provide an analysis of each applicant’s finances. Factors such as household income and expenses, assets and debt, and the number of children in a school that requires tuition are all considerations in determining awards. These awards are available to qualified students in grades Kindergarten – 12.

Factors such as household income and expenses, assets and debt, and the number of children in a school that requires tuition are all considerations in determining awards. The Financial Aid Committee uses the estimate of need calculated by FACTS as a guideline in granting aid.
These awards are available to families with students in grades Kindergarten – 12. Only students who have submitted a USJ application and completed the FACTS online assessment will be considered.
No. USJ awards financial aid based upon the financial need of a family. This does not need to be paid back and is used to offset tuition costs. The money for financial aid comes directly from the school's budget and demonstrates the school's commitment to having a socio-economically diverse student population.
Yes. Because a family’s financial situation may change from year to year, awards may be adjusted if a family’s financial circumstances change significantly. However, as long as a student remains enrolled at USJ, financial aid will be renewed based upon demonstrated need. USJ requires that accounts be current in order for a family to be eligible for financial aid.
Each applicant treated individually. The amount offered is determined after the FACTS application has been processed. Awards are granted without regard to race, religion, or national origin.
Yes. There are payment plans and options that USJ offers. Please contact Tammy Smith at 731-664-0812 ext. 118 for more information.
