All applications for financial aid are submitted online and all financial aid awards for the upcoming academic year are made in the spring. Financial aid awards are based on demonstrated financial need as determined by the FFS Financial Aid Committee. Since the demand for financial aid often exceeds projected available funds, we often cannot meet all demonstrated need.
Parents who are applying for FFS financial aid must complete the financial aid form found here, by the deadline stated in their enrollment letter. Awards are given based on the order in which they are received. Any families who apply later will only be eligible for the funds that may remain.
Families seeking financial aid are strongly encouraged to apply to Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia as well. Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia provides four-year, K-8th grade scholarships to children from low-income Philadelphia families. Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia applications are usually accepted from mid-November through March 1 of each year. Receipt of Children’s Scholarship funds is separate from the FFS awarding of financial aid.
