Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is provided through our annual budget. The goal is to make LNS accessible to families by providing assistance when financial resources are limited. We are not able to offer a full scholarship to any student.

Assistance is awarded based on tax returns and financial needs as determined by the treasurer, president, and the enrollment chairperson. Any request for assistance-and its awarding-will be held in the strictest confidence.

Financial assistance applications should be submitted by December 1
