Applying for tuition assistance is optional.
Tuition Assistance is only available for Preschool 3 and Preschool 4. Acorn and Early Learning Center programs do not qualify for tuition assistance.
Principia requires each family applying for tuition assistance to file a confidential online application through School and Students Services (SSS) by completing the Parent Financial Statement and submitting supporting 2021 tax documentation. It is extremely important to submit the tuition assistance application on time, as there are budgetary limits to the available funds. Do not wait until a child is accepted to apply for assistance.
Tuition Assistance application deadlines:
- January 28, 2023—Early Admission preschool through grade 5
- April 1, 2023—Priority Admission deadline for all grade levels
- June 20, 2023—Late Admission deadline for all grade levels
Applications for tuition assistance will be accepted beyond the deadline. However, the availability of tuition assistance may be limited.
Decisions and notification:
Applying for tuition assistance does not affect the admission decision. The admission decision is a separate process from the tuition assistance determination and is led by a separate committee. The committee deliberations are confidential and address only factors affecting the assessment of financial need. Prospective families can expect a tuition-assistance decision at the same time as their admission decision when applications are completed by the deadline.
Principia administers all programs without regard to gender, race, color, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin. We appreciate and celebrate diversity and individuality throughout our student body.
