General Financial Aid Information
The financial aid program at Christ Church Episcopal School has been established in an effort to reduce the possibility that a qualified applicant or current student would be unable to attend CCES solely as a result of financial need. Current students and applicants accepted by the Admission Office may apply for financial aid by following the procedures below. Applicants must demonstrate financial need as reported by the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Princeton, NJ, an independent outside agency conducting evaluations on behalf of CCES. Financial aid awards are granted on an annual basis and governed by the Financial Aid Award Review Policies which can be accessed through the link below. Financial aid is always contingent upon the availability of funds in any given year. Additional factors taken into account in the award decision process are academic performance and the applicant’s potential to make a positive contribution to the life of the school community.
NEED BASED APPLICATION PROCEDURES
Families interested in possible need based financial aid for the upcoming school year should apply as follows:
Application Link: http://sss.nais.org/parents/Pages/default.aspx
Application Period: November 1, 2012 - January 31, 2013
Required Documents must be submitted to SSS via a secure online upload or by mail. The Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) Online Workbook (available upon login to SSS website) will take you step by step through this process. Timely submission of required documentation is required as it will allow ample time for you to re-enroll your child(ren) if they are current students OR to determine whether or not to matriculate your child(ren) if they are accepted into Christ Church Episcopal School.
Below are the required documents and deadlines to submit:
o 2011-1040: Submit to SSS by January 31, 2013 with your PSF.
o 2012-1040 & Supporting Schedules, including W-2: Submit to SSS by April 30, 2013 or as soon as they become available.
The Financial Aid Office understands that 2012 tax information will likely not be available by the end of the application period above. Please use your best estimates on the PFS if your 2012 tax returns are not finalized by the end of the application period. Required 2012 tax information should be submitted to SSS as soon as it becomes available or no later than April 30, 2013. If estimates used differ significantly from your 2012 tax documents used to verify income, your financial aid award may be adjusted accordingly. Families applying for financial aid will be notified of their award during the 2013-2014 school year re-enrollment/enrollment period.
