Affording Pine Crest School

 
Pine Crest School is committed to building a socioeconomically diverse student body. Our need-based financial and inclusion aid program helps make the full Pine Crest experience accessible to families. Financial aid assists with base tuition; inclusion aid ensures that students may participate in extracurricular activities. 

Financial and inclusion aid are made possible by our generous community through annual fundraising and endowment revenues. Learn more about our financial and inclusion aid program.

Investing In Your Child's Future

A Pine Crest education will always be a significant financial commitment for a family.


We do our best to keep tuition low through careful management of School resources and through our best effort to gain alternate sources of income from an expanded endowment, summer programs, and charitable giving.

In return, we seek families who will place the educational experience of their child as a priority in budgeting their financial resources and in their commitment of time.

Financial and Inclusion Aid

Applying for Financial and Inclusion Aid at Pine Crest School will not affect your acceptance.


We partner with School and Student Services (SSS) for the financial aid process to help determine a family's ability to pay tuition costs.
 
Financial aid is awarded according to demonstrated financial need as determined by SSS. Each family's ability to contribute to the cost of its child's education is based upon information supplied to SSS.

All financial aid awards are re-evaluated annually.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Beginning October 2, 2019, families may apply online. The fee is $51.
  • Pine Crest will not process or review a Financial Aid application until the student is enrolled in the school for the year associated with the financial request.
  • Returning students placed on a "hold status" due to business, academic, or behavioral reasons run the risk of losing Financial Aid if their application is not processed before the deadline.
  • A delay in supplying information to SSS will affect a family's consideration for funds.
