  • Hartley scholarships are generally 25-50% of tuition based on the family's need

  • Hartley scholarships are initially applied to the deposit payment only

    • In order to receive the HNC scholarship rate for the September-April tuition payments, you must submit proof by August 29, 2024, that your family has applied for both the state Early Learning Scholarship (ELS) and St. Louis County Child Care Assistance (CCAP)

      • If your family is ineligible, is denied, or is on a waiting list for ELS or CCAP, the Hartley scholarship will remain in effect
