Important Dates

On Oct. 24, 2016, you may apply online for financial assistance for the 2017-18 school year by going to or clicking on the SSS link here. The PFS form should be completed online no later than March 3, 2017, for grades 1-12. Kindergarten applicants are advised to file by Feb. 1, 2017. The SSS number for Collegiate School is 2494. The fee to complete your PFS online is $48.

If you are a current Collegiate parent planning to apply for financial assistance for the first time, please notify us so that we are aware of the new request.
Collegiate School’s underlying assumption is that each family should bear the primary responsibility for financing their children’s educational costs to the extent that they are able. However, Collegiate does sustain a need-based financial assistance program in order to make the School’s educational experience available to academically qualified students who could not afford to enroll otherwise. Collegiate is committed to being a diverse and inclusive community reflecting a broad socioeconomic range of families. Qualified students should not be deterred from applying for admission due to financial constraints.

Financial Assistance Policy

List of 1 items.

  • Please Read

    Submitting an inquiry or application for financial assistance has no bearing on the admission decision as the School operates in a need-blind manner. Financial assistance funds are used to enroll students who will strengthen our school community and who will broaden our diversity (academic, artistic, athletic, cultural, racial and socioeconomic). Financial assistance resources may also support current families who experience a significant change in financial circumstances in a given year. New or current families who need assistance are encouraged to apply through the confidential process as outlined below.
