  • APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID

    In determining need, Berkeley Preparatory School follows NAIS Principles of Good Practice. Financial aid awards are based upon FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment (FACTS) financial assessment of each applicant. It is important to note that Berkeley may not be able to accommodate all financial aid applicants in a given year. Complete applications and required documents received in the Admissions Office by February 1, 2021 will receive first priority relative to aid dollars available.

    All families applying for financial aid for the first time should contact the Admissions Office. Families currently receiving aid must submit a new financial aid application each year. If the financial circumstances remain the same, the School will make every effort to assist a family at the same level of aid.

    Please note: Returning families currently receiving aid will have a slightly different timeline. Please contact the Admissions Office for details.

    Our Financial Aid applications will be available November 1, 2020.

    To apply for financial aid, please complete the following steps no later than February 1, 2021:
    1. Create your FACTS online account
    2. Complete your Financial Aid application
    3. Submit your additional required documents listed below:
    • Upload your 2018 and 2019 1040 income tax return(s) with signatures

  • DIVORCED, SEPARATED, OR NEVER-MARRIED PARENT/GUARDIAN

    Recognizing that each parent bears a responsibility for financing a student’s education, financial information from all family members is required. Custodial and non-custodial parents (regardless of legal settlements, who are divorced, separated, or never married) must submit their own Financial Aid application. The Financial Aid Committee will consider all household assets in determining need.
