Hill Top Preparatory School has established a financial aid program to help families with the cost of tuition. Financial aid is awarded solely on the basis of need.
How is financial aid determined?
The financial aid program requires each family to submit a PFS (Parents Financial Statement) to the SSS (School and Student Services) by NAIS in Princeton, New Jersey. Families must also submit 2 years of tax returns through SSS.
Who should apply for financial aid?
If the cost of a Hill Top Preparatory School education is beyond a family’s means financially, a parent should apply for financial aid. Income may not preclude the possibility of aid since other dependents, other tuition costs, considerable debt (excluding consumer debt), unusual medical expenses, or other extraordinary financial burdens are considerations. Within the limits of available funds, Hill Top seeks to provide financial aid to all qualified families.
How much financial aid may I expect to receive?
Based upon available funds, Hill Top attempts to meet the needs of families as reported by the Hill Top Financial Form and by the School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS. Every family should expect to contribute to their child’s education.
How and when should I apply?
Upon request, financial aid information will be sent to re-enrolling families each spring and should be completed and returned as soon as possible, as monies are granted on a “first-come, first serve” basis. For new families enrolling, after receipt of your child’s contract, the same applies. You may apply for financial aid online at SSS (School and Student Services).
Must I apply for financial aid each year?
Yes, a new application must be submitted each year. Any changes in your financial status may affect the size of your financial aid.
If you have further questions about the financial aid process, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office.
