LINCOLN, Neb., June 2, 2016—FACTS Management, the leader in school management solutions for private and faith-based K–12 schools, has acquired the business of Private School Aid Service (PSAS), a company focused on providing need analysis services for private schools.
PSAS currently assists over 4,400 private, parochial, and Christian schools in objectively determining the financial needs of families that have chosen non-public education for their children. FACTS, the industry leader in school management services, now serves more than 12,700 schools with a robust suite of services, including tuition management, billing, financial aid assessment, and RenWeb school administration software.
“Both PSAS and FACTS have been serving private and faith-based K–12 schools for nearly 30 years,” said DeeAnn Wenger, President of FACTS. “Over the course of the past three decades, we have been impressed by the strong and loyal school client base PSAS has maintained. We look forward to continuing to provide their clients with the quality service and support they have come to expect from PSAS, while leveraging the advanced technology and integration available through our FACTS Grant & Aid system.”
FACTS continues to change the way schools and their families experience private and faith-based education, providing the most complete academic and financial solutions available. The comprehensive suite of services offered by the company provide a true end-to-end solution that empowers both faculty and families.
“We have shared a long history of healthy and respectful competition with FACTS,” said Kate Bilski, President of PSAS. “We strongly believe that our similar values and focus on providing a superior service experience will only benefit the schools and families we have been so privileged to serve.” Bilski and Matt Richardson, Vice President of PSAS, will continue to serve PSAS clients as members of the FACTS team.
