Financial Aid at Whitby
Due to the large demand for aid for the 2013-14 school year please be advised we will not be considering any new financial aid applications as of December 17, 2012.
Whitby School believes that qualified students who desire an education should not be denied that opportunity because of economic hardship. Thus, we are proud to offer financial aid (for new and existing Whitby families) that helps us provide a balanced school community and at the same time keep the school financially healthy. Please note that financial aid application for new families can only be processed if the student’s admissions application is complete.
For the forthcoming 2013-2014 academic year, financial aid awards will be considered based on:
The completion of the 2013-2014 financial aid application by December 21, 2012
The submission of requisite financial information
Tuition Assistance is available beginning in 1st grade (Lower Elementary 1). The student application fee is waived for families applying for financial aid.
All families applying for financial aid must complete the Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS) available online through the National Association of Independent Schools website at www.nais.org. Whitby’s school code is 8182.
We strongly encourage the online filing of the PFS form for the quickest and most accurate completion of the financial aid application. Families are also encouraged to file their 2012 tax returns prior to the Financial Aid documents submission deadline of March 15, 2013. Final financial aid awards decisions cannot be made until the school has received and verified the parent's 2012 tax returns as filed with the IRS. Award decision will be determined and communicated to families in late Spring 2013. All financial aid information is kept strictly confidential and we expect families receiving financial aid to respect the confidentiality of the process.
If after reviewing the information on the website you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
