Financial Assistance

Milo Adventist Academy is committed to helping teenagers meet the financial obligations of Christian education.

While some families have the financial resources to pay their students’ bills in cash, many others need to take advantage of other means to meet their obligations. Sources of revenue fall into three categories: cash, earnings from the student’s work program, and financial assistance. Discount plans are also available to some students.

FACTS Aid and Grant Assessment for Milo

All students who wish to receive some financial aid and/or worthy student aid from Milo Academy will need to apply through the FACTS Aid and Grant Assessment for Milo application process. You must complete a FACTS application and supply a signed copy of your 2015 IRS Form 1040 and an Form W-2 income tax statements to FACTS. Milo Adventist Academy's Scholarchip Committee will be awarding the student aid based on the submitted applications, need, and the funds available for the year. The deadline for applying for tuition assistance is the last day of July.
