Tuition Assistance

Franklin Capstone accepts students for admission without regard to their financial status. If assistance is needed, we base that decision on the amount of need and available funding.

Individuals who qualify for state and county funding may be able to use their funds towards the cost of tuition. In Minnesota, this is most often through the consumer-directed community supports (CDCS) or other comparable waiver supports. Contact capstone@franklinmn.org for more information if you believe you may be eligible.

To help us objectively assess what a family is able to contribute toward education expenses for their child, we use TADS as a trusted third party. TADS provides an analysis of a family’s “Estimated Family Contribution” and is a critical component of our tuition assistance award decisions, however, it is just a start. To make our tuition assistance award decisions, we use TADS results as the baseline for our review, taking into consideration our total tuition assistance budget, other information we may have collected, our school’s policies and priorities, and the needs of the entire applicant pool.
