NCSEAA: Families needing financial aid are encouraged to apply for the Opportunity Scholarship from the North Carolina State Educational Assistance Authority. These funds are applicable to the cost of tuition and may not cover the additional fees listed above.
Any family requesting a Tennyson Scholarship MUST apply for and receive NCSEAA funding. Tennyson scholarships will be limited to a maximum amount of ½ of the difference between the NCSEAA tuition grant and the remaining tuition due. For instance, if a family qualifies for $6,492 through NCSEAA for a MS student, he may earn a maximum Tennyson Scholarship of $3,152.50 per the calculation below.
$12,797-$6,492=$6,305 remaining tuition
½ X $6,305=$3152.50 maximum Tennyson Scholarship
Total Tuition Relief = $9,644.50
Ministry Partner Scholarships
Any full-time worker within ministries engaged in Evangelical, biblically-adherent missions that are consistent with Iron Academy’s statement of faith may qualify to receive a Ministry Partner Scholarship for their son who has been accepted and enrolled in Iron Academy. Ministry Partner scholarships—mirroring the Tennyson guidelines above—will be limited to a maximum amount of ½ of the difference between the NCSEAA tuition grant and the remaining tuition due.
Limitations of Tennyson and Ministry Partner Scholarships
