Financial Aid

Parker School’s financial aid philosophy is to make the cost of a Parker School education affordable for as many families as possible, with the limited supply of funds it has available each year for financial aid. Once awarded financial aid, families must reapply annually, however, unless there are drastic changes in a family’s financial situation, families can count on consistent aid awards year after year.

Applying for Financial Aid

Parker School utilizes School & Student Services (SSS) for administering financial aid. SSS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from SSS are used by the Parker School financial aid committee in accordance with its policies to determine the award amount. Final award notices are then provided to families by Parker School.

To learn more about SSS and completing the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) visit http://sssbynais.org/parents.

To login and complete your PFS visit https://sss.secure.force.com/familyportal.

When applying, please use Parker School’s SSS code: 5662

Processing Fee

A $48 processing fee will be collected by SSS at the end of the online application. SSS will automatically waive application fees for the families most in need of financial help. Click here to learn more about the fee waiver process.

Supporting Documentation

Tax returns are required to support the financial aid application.  Due to our application deadlines (January for returning families, and February for prospective families) the most recent tax return (2015) is due at the time of application. Current year tax returns (2016) are then due by July 1, 2017.  For more information about submitting tax returns to SSS, visit http://sssbynais.org/parents/apply/required-documents.
