St. Andrew’s Episcopal School believes that a family’s financial situation should not prevent a student from attending the School. St. Andrew’s operates a need-blind admission policy. Therefore, a family’s application for financial aid will have no bearing on a student’s application for admission.
The following procedures apply to families currently receiving financial aid as well as to those (including admissions applicants) applying for the first time. Families interested in applying for financial aid must submit a financial aid application form, available here , to the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School Financial Aid Office by February 1, signifying they would like to be considered for financial aid.
We partner with School and Student Services (SSS) By NAIS in our financial aid process. The entire application process is processed on-line and is kept confidential. To begin your financial aid application, you will complete a Parent Financial Statement (PFS). The PFS is a comprehensive application that will take some time to complete. Give yourself the time you need by not waiting until the deadline to begin. You’ll need your most recent tax return before beginning the PFS. We also recommend that you review the wide range of materials that SSS has put together to help families with the financial aid process. They can be found at sss.nais.org/parents.
We will communicate our financial aid decision to you. To make our decision, we use the information from the PFS as a starting point but also consider our school policy, practices, and available budget. SSS does not decide whether tuition assistance will be given or how much to give; rather SSS provides a need-based financial aid analysis which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. This helps St. Andrew’s make fair and objective financial aid decisions. To begin the on-line financial aid application for the 2015-16 school year, follow these steps below.
How to Complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) Online
- Beginning October 24, 2016, go to sss.nais.org/parents.
- Create your PFS Online account with your email address and a password. If you applied for financial aid last year with SSS, simply login to the PFS Online as a Returning Family, using the email address and password you set up last year.
- Begin a PFS for Academic Year 2017-18. You can log out of the PFS Online at any time, then return later to complete it.
- After you have pressed submit, you’ll be brought to a payment screen. The fee of $47 is nonrefundable. Once your PFS is submitted, it cannot be withdrawn from the SSS system.
- After you pay for and submit your PFS, you’ll have access on the PFS Online to a section called “Manage Documents.” You can upload the additional documents we require there.
HOW TO SUBMIT ADDITIONAL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS ONLINE
- Prepare your documents to be uploaded. Make sure the documents are on your computer, each saved as a separate file. Remove any security or password protection from your document files.
- Return to the PFS Online and login.
- Select the Academic Year 2017-18 button.
- From your PFS Online Dashboard, click on the “Manage Documents” tab.
- On the “My Documents” page, you will see an upload button or a hyperlink next to a specific document name in the “Required Documents” section of the PFS. Clicking either the upload button or a hyperlink will lead you through a series of steps allowing you to name, locate and save the file.
- Once you have uploaded a document, the date will appear in the “Date Uploaded” column within minutes of the upload. Some tax documents go through a verification process. It can take up to 48 hours for the verification process to complete.
All parents–custodial and non-custodial, natural and stepparent–must submit these forms by the appropriate deadlines to receive financial aid. In considering applications for financial assistance for separated or divorced parents, the School considers the assets of both parents before making any award, and will not be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses.
Any student to whom financial aid is awarded can expect that aid to continue as long as he remains in good academic and disciplinary standing at St. Andrew’s and provided his family continues to demonstrate need and is not in financial arrears. Application for assistance must be submitted annually.
Please contact Lisa Witter, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid at (504) 866-6553 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning financial aid.
