FRIENDS ACADEMY MAINTAINS a need-based financial aid policy. This means that no one will be denied admission based on an inability to pay full tuition and that financial aid is awarded strictly based on demonstrated need. Need is determined by a number of factors as outlined in our pamphlet entitled, "Financing Your Friends Academy Education." Twenty percent of our students receive some form of financial assistance.
The financial aid program is guided by the conviction that the primary responsibility for financing a student's independent education rests with his/her family. This cannot be altered by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses. Also, the Financial Aid committee considers each parent to be a potential source of earned income once all children are in school full-time.
While Friends Academy has a generous financial aid budget and is able to meet the needs of many new families, unfortunately we are not able to offer awards to all who qualify.
For New Applicants
When completing the application for admission, check the appropriate box. The Admissions and Financial Aid Office will forward all necessary forms with detailed instructions and deadline dates. All parents must complete the Parents' Financial Statement Form online.
For Current Students
Parents of enrolled students who currently receive financial aid will automatically be sent new forms in early November. Parents of enrolled students who wish to request financial aid for the first time should contact the Admissions and Financial Office to obtain the necessary forms and information. If enrolled as a full-paying student at Friends Academy and there is a change in your financial circumstances, you may apply for financial aid after 2 consecutive school years.
