Tuition Assistance Deadlines

The Summit has need-based tuition assistance for qualifying students age 3 to grade 12. Please see below for the appropriate deadlines. The range of tuition assistance available for a qualifying student is approximately $1,000 to $15,000, depending on demonstrated need through the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). However, the maximum need-based tuition assistance allocated to qualifying families with children age 3 to grade 6 is capped at 50 percent of the tuition. To begin the tuition assistance application process, please submit a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) to the National Association of Independent Schools website at sssbynais.org/parents

The Summit school code is: 7564.

We strongly encourage new families applying for tuition assistance to adhere to the deadlines below.   Tuition assistance applications will be accepted after Feb. 15 if funds are available. When new applications exceed the availability of funds, it is sometimes necessary to be placed in a waiting pool for tuition assistance.
