Financial Aid Application Procedure and Policies:
Need based financial aid is awarded for a period of one academic year. Families must reapply for financial aid each year the student attends Prep. Those who are interested in receiving aid need to enroll in the FAIR process of estimating financial aid. Prep cannot award aid to anyone who has not completed the FAIR process. All Financial Aid applications must be processed by FAIR. (DO NOT apply for Prep Financial Aid through FACTS)
The FAIR website will ask applicants to provide Prep's School Code and Password. They are:
School Code: 144
FAIR's phone number for technical support and other questions is: 877-676-3247

Policy for Divorced Parents
In the case of divorced parents who file for Financial Aid, each parent’s need is evaluated independently of the other’s. The tuition payment responsibility stipulated in the divorce decree is used as the basis for allocating financial aid. Unless specifically stated in the divorce decree, Prep assigns equal responsibility to each party for determining need. Therefore, if only one parent files a financial aid application, financial aid will be determined and awarded only for that portion of the tuition which is the filing parent’s tuition payment responsibility; the non filing parent will be expected to pay his or her portion of tuition in its entirety. Award amounts may be modified at any time based on current and subsequent stipulations of the divorce proceedings.
Please contact the Director of Financial Aid for clarification or questions.
