Fairfield Prep strives to make tuition affordable. Through the generosity of our alumni and other benefactors many students whose families would otherwise not be able to afford a Prep education are enrolled and thriving. No prospective applicant should decline to apply for admission to Fairfield Prep solely for financial reasons.
FINANCIAL AID FACTS
The following is a summary of facts relating to Fairfield Prep's financial aid program: (Click here for an expanded financial aid facts sheet.)
- Fairfield Prep has awarded more than $2.1 million in tuition assistance grants for the 2013-2014 school year.
- One out of every four Prep students receives financial aid.
- The average award is approximately half the annual cost of tuition.
- The maximum award available is 90% of tuition.
- Financial aid is need-based; no merit-based scholarships are available.
- Financial aid is a gift, not a loan, and is not expected to be repaid.
- There is no work-study component to financial aid.
- Students whose financial aid awards exceed fifty percent of tuition are required to participate in Prep's S.E.E.D. program (click here for more information on the S.E.E.D. requirement).
Please note that due to the complexity of the analysis performed by PSAS, we are unable to provide figures that would readily equate financial aid award amounts to income and/or asset levels.
For each family, the combination of income, assets and certain non-discretionary expenses presents a unique set of factors for analysis. In the end, the only way for parents to find out if they will qualify for financial aid, and if so, for what amount, is to fill out and submit the Student Aid Form.
