GPS partners with School and Student Services (SSS), a program of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), in its financial aid process. SSS is used by many K-12 independent schools to help determine a family's ability to pay school costs. Using SSS in the financial aid application process helps to ensure that schools employ equitable methods and objective baselines when evaluating a family's financial aid application. The financial aid committee uses the SSS recommendation from the required Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and supporting documents as a starting point to assist in making a determination of each family’s need-based qualification. We also consider school policies and the limited amount of financial aid available for the coming school year.
The School admits students of any race, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, financial aid program, or athletics or other school-administered activities.
Financial Aid Process
The financial aid application for the 2020-21 school year opens October 1, 2019, and must be completed and submitted by December 31, 2019.
