Financial Aid

FINANCIAL AID

Financial aid strengthens the economic and social diversity of the school, which is key to Renbrook's mission. We wish to help academically qualified students attend the school whenever possible. Financial aid is awarded on the basis of a family's need for tuition support and the availability of financial aid funds. Each year, about 30% of our students receive some level of financial support. Awards range from 10% to 70% of tuition.

Applying for Financial Aid

List of 3 items.

  • Step 1: Application

    Families must first complete an application to Renbrook School by the stated deadlines.
  • Step 2: Parents' Financial Statement (PFS)

    Families must complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and submit it electronically to School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) with the required fee. The form is available as of November 1. The PFS must be completed and submitted by December 31 for current families receiving a grant, and by February 15 for first-time applications to be considered in our first round of financial awards.  
    Financial assistance is available after the first round of awards but the earlier you apply and complete your SSS application the more likely aid will be available.
    After you have submitted your PFS to School and Student Service for Financial Aid, the SSS office will send Renbrook an electronic computation of your financial need, based on the information you have provided. Renbrook uses this computation as a basis for consideration. Parents will also have access to the computation from SSS.
     
  • Step 3: Income Tax Form

    In addition to completing your PFS, you need to upload a copy of your Income Tax Form #1040 (including all supporting schedules) and a copy of your W2/1099 Form(s) for the current tax year to your SSS account by February 28. If you own a business, please provide a copy of your business tax return.
    Please note that these documents are required for consideration by the school’s Financial Aid Committee. In the case of divorce, Renbrook expects that both legal parents will contribute to the cost of their child(ren)’s education to the extent of their ability. Custodial and non-custodial parents must complete PFS forms and send these to SSS; both must also submit tax forms and W2s as required.
Confidentiality and Notification: All information received by Renbrook School is held in strictest confidence. The Financial Aid Committee will notify families of its determination before requiring them to return an enrollment contract.
