Tuition Assistance Application

Applying for tuition assistance


Falmouth Academy offers need-based aid to qualified families.  We use
School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS in helping to determine a family’s financial need.  To begin your tuition assistance application, you will need to complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).  The PFS is reviewed by our Affordability Committee and provides a guideline in making tuition assistance decisions.  To make our decision, we use the information from the PFS as a starting point but also consider our school policy, practices, and available budget.  All families applying for tuition assistance must submit a tuition assistance application to SSS every year. For prospective families applying for admission and tuition assistance, your admission application must be completed before your tuition assistance application will be determined.  Our initial deadline for receiving applications is February 1.  Applications received after the deadline are reviewed if funds are available. 

 

The process

List of 5 items.

  • 1. Prepare to apply

    Review the SSS Parents' Financial Statement Workbook and Instruction Booklet and gather any materials you will need to reference as you answer the questions in the PFS.  For parents who are separated or divorced, Falmouth Academy requires each parent/family to submit a Parent Financial Statement through SSS (including IRS Form 1040, W-2’s).
  • 2. Complete your PFS online

    1. Families can complete their PFS in the SSS Family Portal for 2020-21 starting on October 2.  Create an account by clicking the link below to begin the PFS for Academic Year 2020-21. Falmouth Academy's SSS code is 3113.
  • 3. Pay for and submit your PFS online

    After completing all the fields of the PFS, you will choose your method of secure payment ($51) on the "Pay and Submit" screen. Once you submit your PFS, your information is sent to Falmouth Academy.

  • 5. Questions?

    All questions and communication regarding completing the PFS or the submission of financial documents should be directed to SSS.  Please contact SSS customer service at (800) 344-8328.
PLEASE NOTE: Tuition assistance review begins February 1st for completed applications of returning students and students applying for admission. Review continues thereafter if funds are still available. Missing the February 1st tuition assistance application deadline significantly reduces the likelihood of receiving tuition assistance. Families are notified of a tuition assistance decision with their enrollment contract. 
If you have any questions about the school’s tuition assistance program, please call Director of Admission and Enrollment Management Julie Bradley at 508-457-9696, x236 or email at jbradley@falmouthacademy.org.
