Financial Aid

The Salisbury School urges you to complete and submit all required documents by February 1, 2020. It is our objective to award grants as expeditiously as possible and to do so we must have all information in a timely manner. While we carefully consider applications received during the spring and summer, there is no guarantee additional tuition funding sources will be available, so we urge you to respond in a timely manner.

The Salisbury School is committed to making our educational program available to students from all backgrounds. The school’s financial aid program supports our school’s charter: to foster and maintain a diverse student body. Financial aid awards are distributed from funds raised by the school community and donations from generous private and corporate sponsors. No state or federal funding is provided to The Salisbury School for purposes of financial aid. We recognize the significance of this investment and we encourage you to take advantage of the financing options we offer. A student enrollment application must be completed and returned to the school prior to filing a financial aid application. Financial aid is available to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

School and Student Services (SSS)

TSS uses a third-party platform, School and Student Services (SSS), to process our financial aid applications. SSS will ask you to fill out an online Parents' Financial Statement (PFS). Based on the financial information you provide on this comprehensive form, SSS reports to schools an estimated amount your family can contribute towards tuition. 

Tuition Payment Options

Our school offers a variety of payment plans. These include full payment by July 31st or 10 monthly payments beginning July 1st ending in April. The payment option is assessed 2% per month on the balance due.  Additionally, a low fixed rate education loan may be secured from Your Tuition SolutionSM, which provides monthly payments that can never increase. There are no supplemental fees and it’s easy to apply or add tuition for subsequent years. For more information download the Your Tuition SolutionSM Brochure. Or visit their website, Your Tuition SolutionSM, to calculate payments and apply online.
