Applying for Financial Aid

New families should check the box on their admissions application to indicate that they are interested in receiving a financial aid packet or scholarship information. Current Boys' Latin families already receiving financial aid will automatically receive a financial aid packet and do not need to contact the Admissions Office. Current families not receiving financial aid should contact the Admissions Office to request a financial aid packet.

If your son is applying to more than one school, completing one PFS will suffice as long as all of the schools your son is applying to use the School and Student Services (SSS) by the National Association of Independent Schools as their financial aid service provider. Please note that you must indicate on the PFS that your son is applying to Boys' Latin in order for the School to be able to access your financial information through SSS. Boys' Latin's School Code Number is 1786.

You need to submit only one PFS per household. Part B of the PFS allows you to list multiple applicants. If after submitting your PFS, you want to add an additional applicant, you can revise your PFS online to include the additional applicant. Please note that you may also need to make a change to item #19A in part E regarding the number of children who will be attending tuition-charging schools.

In cases of separation or divorce, both parents must submit a separate PFS and other financial information to SSS. If either parent has remarried, Boys' Latin will consider the financial resources of the entire household.

The Financial Aid Committee will send written notification of decisions to new applicants to the school on February 20, 2020. Financial aid awards will be mailed to returning financial aid students on or around April 12, 2020.
