Financial Aid


SDFAS offers tuition assistance to qualified applicants based entirely on demonstrated financial need.  We use School and Student Services, SSS, a service of NAIS, the National Association of Independent Schools.

New and returning applicants must submit a financial aid application for the 2018-2019 school year due on February 2nd, 2018. All forms and supporting documents must be submitted by the deadline. Applications received after this date will be reviewed on a funds-available basis.

Application Steps:

  • Create an account with SSS and complete the Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS).
  • Upload a signed copy of your 2017 Federal Tax Form (1040) including all supporting schedules and forms
  • Upload a copy of your 2017 W-2’s/1099’s, relevant corporate tax forms and/or K1 forms (if applicable).
  • Submit a personal motivational letter with information specific to your situation.
