Financial Support

Wendy B. Speir Student Financial Aid:
The Wendy B. Speir Student Financial Aid Fund provides financial assistance to qualifying families, making a Hill education accessible to many students each year. In 2020-21, over $350,000 was awarded in financial aid. Twenty-six percent of families received awards with an average award of $8,500. Applications for financial aid are accepted through School & Student Services (SSS), and all inquiries and applications are held in the strictest confidence. Awards are based on a family’s demonstrated need, as well as factors including the total financial aid budget, the applicant pool need, school policies and procedures, and other additional information acquired during the financial aid process.

North Carolina State Scholarship Grants

Hill Learning Center participates in three North Carolina state-funded programs administered by the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA). These programs expand school choice for eligible K-12 students. Requirements for each program vary, so we encourage families to review eligibility requirements at the NCSEAA website and a comparison summary of the three programs. In 2020-21, Hill families received over $175,000 from these programs to attend Hill School.

Have questions? Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina (PEFNC) is a statewide organization that supports greater educational options through parental school choice and helps families navigate the requirements for the state-funded programs. Visit the PEFNC website to learn more.
