We are unable to adjust or prorate the cost of any SOAR Extended Care programs. Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is available for qualified families. Financial aid award amounts are determined by a family’s current financial aid award for their school tuition, up to a maximum of 75% (example: a 25% financial aid award for school tuition= a 25% financial aid award for SOAR Extended Care). Simply select the “Yes, I receive financial aid on my FWCD tuition” option in your enrollment registration, and we will automatically deduct the appropriate amount from your bill. Please note: financial aid is not available for enrichment programs.Are payment plans available for SOAR programs?

When completing your online registration, you will have the option to pay in two installments (due September 1, 2018, and January 1, 2019), or in monthly payments (September through May, a total of 9 payments). Payment plans are not available for Monthly Enrollment Plans, Single-Day Enrollment Plans, and Enrichment Programs.What does SOAR do on early dismissal days?

If my student is participating in a SOAR Enrichment Program, do I have to register them for SOAR Extended Care on that day? Do I have to escort them to their SOAR Enrichment Program?
Students who are participating in a SOAR Enrichment Program are not required to register for SOAR Extended Care. At the end of the school day, students enrolled in a SOAR Enrichment Program will be taken to their respective SOAR check-in stations (the Lower School Atrium for students in grades JK – 4, and the Moncrief Library for students in grades 5 – 6). Students will receive a snack, and will then be picked up by their Enrichment Program instructor, who will walk students to the Enrichment Program location. At the end of the Enrichment Program session, students will then be taken back to their respective SOAR check-out locations (the Lower School Atrium for students in grades JK – 4, and the Moncrief Library for students in grades 5 – 6).
My student has special dietary needs. Will you have a special snack to accommodate their situation?
While we can’t accommodate all dietary requests as they pertain to daily snack, the SOAR staff works closely with Nurse Lori McCormack to ensure that no SOAR participants are exposed to dangerous allergens. We also make sure that none of our snacks contain nuts (nor are they produced in facilities that process nuts). Please be sure to complete the “allergy and other medical concerns” section of the SOAR application to further ensure that the SOAR staff is aware of your student’s dietary and medical needs.
My student is enrolled in the Gail Corkery School of Ballet. Can SOAR staff help him/her get changed and transported to the ballet studio?
Unfortunately, due to staffing limitations and in an effort to maintain a safe environment for SOAR participants, SOAR staff cannot assist with changing and transporting students to non-SOAR programs (including but not limited to Gail Corkery School of Ballet).
