Applying for Financial Support
Financial Aid Application Instructions
We operate with a rolling admissions process so applications for admission can be submitted at any time, and will be considered as space is available in the grade level of the applicant.
To Apply for Financial Aid:
1. Visit the SSS site by clicking the green button on the right or visiting http://sssbynais.org.
2. Upload to the SSS site a signed copy of your 2017 Federal Income Tax Return, including all schedules and copies of your W-2 forms.
3. Complete the PFS form. The SSS School Code for Buckingham Friends School is #1936. You may estimate your 2018 taxes until you have filed your taxes and actual 2018 data is available. You will be able to go back into SSS to update the estimated information with actual data, and your award will be reconsidered if the information is different. Please be sure to answer all questions and supply explanations where requested, as missing answers or explanations will delay your application.
Financial Statement for Parents who are Separated, Divorced or Never Married
Please note that an award cannot be made without information from both natural parents as well as step-parents.
Complete this form if the Parents’ Financial Statement does not include information for both natural parents and step-parents. The application cannot be considered complete until all parties have submitted their information (information is NOT shared with the other parent) as all potential sources of tuition support must be considered.
If you have unusual or extenuating circumstances for which you would like to provide clarification, please call to schedule an appointment with our Director of Finance and Operations, Douglas Haigh, at 215-794-7491 x104.
Please contact SSS at 800-344-8328 or http://sssbynais.org if you have any questions about the online application process.
