Financial Aid Application
Archway School makes financial aid decisions based on the CAIS Principles of Good Practice and its policy “not to fund students beyond their demonstrated need.” In order to be fair and equitable, the Financial Aid Committee reviews each completed financial aid application. The amount of money available for financial aid awards is limited and is apportioned based on need.
In order to be considered, you must submit the following:
(1) A Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) form filled out and submitted online from www.sss.nais.org. Preferred financial aid deadline is Monday, January 14, 2013. Click on the prompt to begin your Parents’ Financial Statement.
You will be given a password that will allow you to save and come back to your PFS if needed. Archway School’s code is 3775. There is a small fee to submit the PFS. In the case of separated or divorced parents, BOTH parents must apply.
(2) A Financial Assistance Inquiry Form (below)
(3) IRS Form 4506 http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf Complete numbers 1-5 and sign but do not submit payment.
(4) 2012 tax return (IRS Form 1040, first two pages, upload to the SSS website by March 1, 2013)
To be considered for financial assistance, please adhere to the deadlines. Applicants who apply after the deadlines may not be considered.
If you have any questions, please contact Bruce Shoup, Head of School, or Karen Smith Famous, Business Manager, at (510) 849-4747 extensions 27 or 28, respectively.
