Children’s Community School is committed to fostering a community that reflects the diversity of Los Angeles.

We define diversity broadly. To meet CCS’s diversity goals, the School provides financial aid for a significant portion of our students who would otherwise not be able to attend.

The Admissions process is separate from our Financial Aid process. School faculty determine admissions, while a subcommittee of the school’s Board of Directors awards financial aid. It is therefore possible that a student might be offered admission at CCS yet might not be offered financial aid. If no financial aid is given to a family in their first year at CCS, they will have to demonstrate a substantial change in income in order to be considered for financial aid the following year.

CCS processes financial aid applications through an outside service which is a division of ISM (Independent School Management). Its Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program provides a need-based analysis service. To apply for financial aid, check the appropriate box on the CCS Admissions Application, or contact Helen Stevenson at CCS (helen@ccsteaches.org) for information.

Complete and submit your application by clicking on the FAST logo below.  Be sure to review the user’s guide and compile your financial statements before starting.

Please Note: 
You must submit last year’s tax return, so file early!
