“The disposition to ask assistance from others with confidence, and to grant it with kindness, should be part of our very nature.” —Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve
American Heritage School is grateful for the generous donations of many who have much and choose to give freely (Matthew 10:8). They understand that a great education can not only change a child’s life and circumstance, but the life of the many generations that follow. If financial assistance is required, please take the time complete the application form. If you wish to make a contribution to our scholarship fund, please contact our board.
The vast majority of financial aid awarded by the school is based upon demonstrated financial need. The application requires disclosure of family financial information as well as a cover letter explaining the need. The level of need to qualify for financial aid is not fixed by formula and will vary from year to year depending upon the number of applicants in that year, funds available, and the relative circumstances of other applicants in the pool. The level of need does not need to be “poverty level” (federal free-and-reduced-lunch level) to qualify for financial aid, and can be significantly higher depending upon various factors, such as the number of children a family is enrolling at the school, short-term need-based circumstances, availability of seats in a class, and the overall mission-fit of the student and family applicant.
Non-discrimination Notice: American Heritage School does not discriminate against any employee, student, employee applicant, or student applicant because of race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, physical and/or mental disability. American Heritage School adheres to this non-discrimination policy with respect to all of its policies and programs, including educational programs, employment and admission programs, scholarship and financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. In keeping with the school’s religious orientation and purpose, as well as with the school’s desire to respect the dignity and diversity of individuals, the school affords equal opportunity in employment and admission on the basis of sexual orientation, but not on the basis of conduct. All members of the school community are required to comply with the American Heritage School Honor Code, which requires chastity outside of marriage, and fidelity in marriage, as further defined in The Family, A Proclamation to the World (“The Family Proclamation”), issued by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The school affirms the centrality of doctrines in The Family Proclamation relating to human sexuality and gender, as well as the sanctity and significance of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The school, as is permitted by accreditation standards and regulations, prefers faithful members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in employment. American Heritage School also affirms that all people are equally beloved children of God and deserve to be treated with love and respect, and we recognize the critical importance of a safe campus environment for all students and employees.
