Affording Hill

A Hill Learning Center education is a valuable investment, empowering students to reach their full potential and become confident, independent learners. The Wendy B. Speir Student Financial Aid Fund reduces the financial barriers to attending Hill School by offering financial assistance to students who qualify for enrollment yet lack family financial resources to attend. In 2018-19, approximately $300,000 was awarded in financial aid. Twenty-five percent of Hill Learning Center families received awards up to $10,600, and two students received full scholarships thanks to the generosity of the NC GlaxoSmithKline Foundation. In addition to financial aid, two State Scholarship Grants are available to qualifying families. Below you will find information regarding Hill’s financial aid process and the State Scholarship Grants.

State Scholarship Grants

Hill Learning Center participates in two North Carolina State Scholarship Grant programs. We encourage families to review the program rules thoroughly and to take advantage of these opportunities. Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina (PEFNC) is a statewide organization that supports greater educational options through parental school choice. Visit the PEFNC website for more information about State Scholarship Grants.


Federal Tax Deduction

School tuition and fees may be tax-deductible as medical expenses. Children who have been diagnosed as having a specific learning disability or attention deficit disorder may qualify for deductions under the federal income tax regulations.
