If a family’s financial aid application is complete, the Committee will make every effort to issue an enrollment contract with a financial aid award.
  • Q. Is there a deadline to apply for financial aid?

    The guidelines for applying for financial aid include deadline dates, and while applications submitted after the published due dates may be considered, funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Funds are also limited to a set budget each year. The Admissions Office encourages families to apply for financial aid as soon as possible.
