The PAES School Board may be able to provide minimal tuition assistance. However, tuition aid may also be available through other sources listed below:

  1. Church tuition assistance: Constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches may have a fund for tuition assistance. Families who are members of those churches may be eligible to receive tuition assistance.  Please see your church pastor or education representative for further information and forms.
  2. New convert subsidy: Families that are newly baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist Church may be eligible for new convert subsidy if that baptism has occurred within the past 18 months and the child/children are enrolled in a SDA school for the first time. Please consult your pastor or the school office for further information.
  3. Educational subsidy: A subsidy provided by employing organizations may be deducted from your monthly tuition charges. Please consult with your employer and the school business office to make arrangements for this assistance.
