Apply for financial aid

 

Financial aid at Peddie is based on each family's ability to pay. In accordance with the National Association of Independent Schools "Principles of Good Practice," we believe that the primary responsibility for funding a child's education lies with the family. As such, we expect that each family will fund the child's education to the extent that they are able. Our financial aid program is designed to aid families after they have considered all of their own resources.

The Peddie School uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. This process ensures that your information will be delivered accurately, securely and quickly to our school.

Step 1

SUBMIT PARENTS FINANCIAL STATEMENT


  • Go to peddie.org/sss.
  • Click on prompt to begin your Parents' Financial Statement (PFS). You will be assigned a username (your email address) and password, and you will be able to return to your PFS at a later date to submit it.
  • Peddie's school code is 5716.
  • Each parent/family/household must complete the PFS.
  • Once completed, print and retain a copy for your own records.
  • New families: PFS statements should be submitted by January 15.

Step 2

SUBMIT REQUIRED DOCUMENTS


Upload all tax documents (additional guidance on required documents will be given on your SSS account).  Financial aid applications are not considered complete until all documentation is submitted to SSS.

What if my tax information is not available by the required deadline? If your current tax information is not available prior to January 15, please provide all previous year's information by January 15. However, it is imperative that current tax information be uploaded as soon as it becomes available, as financial aid awards will not be finalized until after receipt of current-year returns and verification of supplied income, asset and tax estimates.

Helpful Resources

SSS has put together a wide range of materials to help families and can be found in their Family Resource Center. Parent support is available if you need help with your PFS or required documents at (800) 344-8328 or sss@communitybrands.com.  

note for returning families

Returning families who have recieved financial aid must reapply each year that their child attends Peddie. Information on reapplication deadlines will be communicated to parents via email and can be found in My BackPack.

Financial Aid Application Deadlines:

January 15 is the deadline for new families to submit PFS statements.

Please plan to file your taxes as early as possible in order to ensure that your financial aid application can be completed by this deadline. No financial aid awards will be finalized until after receipt of current-year returns and verification of supplied income, asset and tax estimates.

Note: If you have not received your 2020 W-2 forms before the January 15 deadline, ensure that all other application materials are sent by January 15, and send 2019 W-2 forms as soon as possible and no later than February 15, 2021.
