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. The Financial Aid application deadline for new students is February 1, 2021 for priority consideration.

Applying for Financial Aid
Parker School utilizes Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) for administering financial aid. TADS provides a framework through which household needs can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from TADS are used by Parker School’s 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 apply for financial aid, first review the TADS Financial Aid Worksheet available in the Parker School Business Office, or by clicking on the button below or download here. This is NOT an application, but a worksheet that will help you prepare to fill out the TADS application. This worksheet will also inform you of the supporting documents you will need to complete your application and will direct you to the TADS website where you can get started.
A $42 processing fee will be collected by TADS at the end of the online application. Parker School has a limited number of fee waivers for those experiencing financial hardship. Contact Gerry Delgado in the Business Office for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808) 885-6803.
Tax returns are required to support the financial aid application. Due to our application deadlines in February, the most recent tax return (2018) is due at the time of application. Current year tax returns (2019) are then due by July 1, 2020. You may mail, fax or upload your documentation to TADS. More information will be given at the end of the application.
Financial Aid Application
What are the requirements for financial aid?
The financial need evaluation is different for every school and every family. We take into account all aspects of your financial situation during the evaluation.
What documentation will I need to complete the application?
The required supporting documentation will be outlined at the beginning and end of the online application and is tailored specifically to what is entered on your application. Typically, TADS requires your most recently filed 1040 tax form (or verification of non-filing status from the IRS), your most recent W-2 statements, your most recent pay stubs as well as documentation of the stated debt on your application. Other documentation may be required.
How can I send in the supporting documentation?
You may mail, fax or upload your documentation to TADS. We will give you document submission information at the end of the application.
What if I want to leave my online application and come back to it later?
You may log back in to the TADS system and complete the application at any time.
How do I know if you have received my fax, mail or upload?
TADS will send you an email within 48 business hours of receiving your fax, mailed document or upload.
If my circumstances change, can I change my application?
Please call the TADS helpline if you need to adjust your application, a TADS representative will ask for documentation of these changes to be submitted by mail, fax or upload.
