Tuition Assistance

Baker families reflect a breadth of socio-economic diversity that continue to make our school the top choice for PreK-8 Progressive education on Chicago’s North Shore.  We welcome all students with intellectual curiosity and a broad range of talents and experiences to join our community of learners.

Baker offers need-based tuition assistance to qualified, full-day students each year, in addition to various payment options to help manage tuition costs. Qualifications are determined by a third party, FACTS, and reported back to the school.

To be considered, families must first complete the online admission application for 2020-21, then submit the application for need-based assistance through FACTS.  Baker is able to make an award only when a child’s admission file is complete. Applications filed on or before December 14th will be prioritized. All information submitted is confidential.

In August 2017, with bipartisan support, the House and Senate passed a comprehensive education funding bill that was signed into law by the governor of Illinois. The law includes a provision for tax credit scholarships, which provide strong incentives for donors to support non-public school scholarships for low-income students in the state. Illinois students from low-income families may use these new scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice.
