Financial aid includes tuition support as well as consideration for various Collegiate programs that enrich the experience of the student and encourage the participation of his family in the life of the school. The determination of financial aid awards is based on the financial need of each family and the availability of funds. Collegiate School attempts to support the difference between the cost of educating a student and an individual family's ability to pay tuition. Each award is a result of analysis by Collegiate School and the School and Student Services By NAIS (SSS). Families participating in the financial aid program are billed according to a ten-month payment plan administered by Collegiate School.
In order to be considered for financial aid, parents must complete the detailed Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) each year. Parents are required to submit information to the School and Student Services By NAIS (SSS) and Collegiate School no later than January 15 of the school year prior to the one for which aid is requested. Required information may be submitted to SSS online (sssbynais.org/parents
). A family's most recently filed federal tax return and supplementary documents are required and should be made available to Collegiate School no later than January 15.
Financial aid, based on need, is available at all grade levels. Collegiate School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other legally protected class in the administration of its financial aid program.
