Scholarships and Financial Aid
We are unable to provide tuition scholarships or financial aid at this time but we encourage you to reach out to our Founder, Anne Stires, to discuss any situation which might prevent attendance for family with a sincere desire to enroll their child at Juniper Hill School. However, we hope to offer scholarships and financial aid soon. If you reside in Alna or in another town that carries the school choice benefit, your tuition expenses may be mostly covered through reimbursement. Read more about this benefit here
