Admissions

Financial Aid

Stoneleigh-Burnham offers need-based financial aid for qualifying domestic families and a limited number of merit-based scholarships. 50% of our current students receive some form of assistance, and many other families have been counseled in creative financing options. We are committed to supporting qualified, well-rounded, and positive students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from and contribute to our community.

Most of the available financial aid is offered to families who apply by February 15th. We are generally unable to offer financial aid to international students.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

  1. The Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) should be completed online with the School and Student Service (SSS) by NAIS at sssbynais.org by January 30th. New families should complete the statement as soon as possible. You may estimate income and expenses if the exact numbers are not known. The Financial Aid Office will make corrections by referring to the IRS Form 1040. Here’s the information you need to apply via NAIS.
  2. Both custodial and non-custodial parents should upload a signed copy of their 2016 IRS Form 1040 with all schedules and statements as well as their 2017 W-2s to the SSS account or submit a paper copy to the Financial Aid Office on or before February 15*. The 2017 IRS Form 1040 with all schedules and statements should be uploaded as soon as feasible.
  3. Once your daughter has been accepted, and we have received the necessary paperwork, the Financial Aid Committee will meet to review your request for financial aid. The following paperwork is required:
    • copies of your current and previous year’s Income Tax Returns
    • copies of your W-2 forms for last year and previous year
    • parents’ financial statement (PFS) submitted to SSS.
