Financial Aid

If your family wishes to be considered for financial aid, please file a Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) with School and Student Services by NAIS (SSS) by February 1. Please also send to SSS (and not to WES as requested in the past) the following required documents:  a complete copy of your most recent federal income tax return (with W2s and all schedules included). Please confirm with the Office of Admission and Financial Aid that your SSS application was filed by the deadline. The PFS need only be completed once; you may request that it be sent to all prospective schools.

Why Invest in an Early Childhood and Elementary Education?

Research has shown again and again that the most significant formative educational period for students is not high school or college but the early years, when fundamental skills and attitudes are formed, developing a strong foundation for later study. Putting educational dollars to use for early childhood and elementary education will have a greater, more lasting effect than the same amount spent on high school or college.
