Apply for Financial Aid

Falmouth Academy offers need-based aid to qualified families.  We use School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS in helping to determine a family’s financial need.  To begin your financial aid application, you will need to complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).  The PFS is reviewed by our Financial Aid Committee and provides a guideline in making financial aid decisions.  To make our decision, we use the information from the PFS as a starting point but also consider our school policy, practices, and available budget.  All families applying for financial aid must submit a financial aid application to SSS every year.  For prospective families applying for admission and financial aid, your admission application must be completed before your financial aid application will be determined.  Our initial deadline for financial aid applications is February 1.  Applications received after the deadline are reviewed if funds are available.  Please be sure to review Falmouth Academy's financial aid policies.

If you have any questions about the school’s financial aid program, please call Director of Admission and Enrollment Management Julie Bradley at 508-457-9696, x236 or email at jbradley@falmouthacademy.org.

PLEASE NOTE: Financial aid review begins February 1st for completed applications of returning students and students applying for admission. Review continues thereafter if financial aid funds are still available. Missing the February 1st financial aid application deadline significantly reduces the likelihood of receiving financial aid. Families are notified of a financial aid decision with their enrollment contract. 

 
Falmouth Academy adheres to the NAIS Principles of Good Practice with regards to its financial aid process.
