The financial assistance program at Francis Parker School is guided by our belief that parents have an obligation to pay the educational expenses of their children to the extent that they are able. In an effort to promote access for students who will benefit from an outstanding college-preparatory education and whose contribution in and outside of the classroom will enrich the Parker community, Francis Parker School provides financial assistance to qualified families.
Francis Parker School’s financial assistance policies reflect standards of equity and fairness and embrace Francis Parker School’s ongoing commitment to access, affordability, and socio-economic diversity.
Families are required to submit financial information on an annual basis through School & Student Services (SSS), an objective third party financial needs assessment service offered through the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
Francis Parker School adheres to local, state, and federal laws and regulations that require non-discriminatory practice in the administration of its financial assistance policies.
