We’ve designed our tuition assistance program to increase access to a TBS education for as many families as possible. We begin by evaluating each family’s financial need according to nationwide guidelines established by NAIS’ School and Student Services (SSS). In making award decisions, we factor in our school’s strategic, mission-connected need to sustain diverse classroom and community environments that benefit all students as they prepare to engage a changing world.
Tuition Assistance Deadlines
Priority Applications for new applicants are due Friday, January 25, 2019.
How to Apply
The Berkeley School’s code for School and Student Services is 1598.
There is a $51 application fee. An income-based waiver of this fee may automatically be waived upon submission.
All parenting adults, including those who are separated, divorced, non-custodial, or unmarried must be included in the application in order to be considered.
You must upload supporting documents including tax returns and schedules as directed on the SSS website.

What Happens Next?
If the PFS and required documents are submitted on time, preliminary award information will be included in re-enrollment packets for returning students and admission decision packets for new students.
Assistance will be based on the information provided and offered on a provisional basis until a copy of the signed and filed 2018 return is provided.
Only one PFS is required for multiple TBS children.
Complete the PFS using good faith estimates for your annual income. You do not need to wait to file your 2018 taxes. You must, however, provide W2s and 1099s as soon as you receive them.
