Applying for tuition assistance is optional.
Tuition Assistance is available for grades 6–8.
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.
Financial Aid application deadlines:
- January 11, 2023—Early Admission grades 6–12*
- April 1, 2023—Priority Admission deadline for all grade levels
- June 20, 2023—Late Admission deadline for all grade levels
Application for tuition assistance will be accepted beyond the deadline. However, the availability of tuition assistance may be limited.
*Scholarships are available through the April 1 deadline.
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 or before the deadline.
