Tuition and Financial Aid

Like previous years, the reservation will be a two-step process. At 6:30 pm, the reservation form will open, giving families time to enter their information before submission at 7 pm.  Once families reserve their time stamp, they will receive an email to log into their EmpowerXChange portal and complete the application when it opens on Friday, January 14.
