**Tuition Assistance should be applied for at the same time as Admissions.** Do not wait to be accepted before applying for Tuition Assistance.
We are committed to making a Pinecrest education affordable to all qualified students to the extent that our resources allow. Accordingly, the school offers a tuition assistance program intended to help families who demonstrate financial need. Tuition assistance is given at the school’s discretion based on an assessment of the family’s financial need and on the availability of funds. There are no merit-based financial aid awards at Pinecrest. Preference is given to families who have children already attending the school. While it is not possible to fulfill all tuition assistance requests, Pinecrest makes every effort to help as many families as resources allow.
Pinecrest uses the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) School and Student Services (SSS) to facilitate the tuition assistance application process. The NAIS SSS portal is now open
. The Pinecrest Academy NAIS SSS school code is 5795. The deadline for submitting an application for tuition assistance consideration for current enrolled families is January 15th, 2021.
