Financial Aid Information and Instructions
It is with great enthusiasm that we introduce our new streamlined financial aid process for the 2017-2018 school year.
Skyuka Hall has partnered with the National Association of Independent Schools to provide you with the ability to create a Parent Financial Statement, or PFS. The submission of the PFS will generate a report to you, the financial aid applicant, and one to Skyuka Hall administration.
The report generated will indicate the amount your family can securely contribute toward tuition. This process will allow Skyuka Hall to make fair and equitable financial aid decisions for our families. While the report indicates your ability to pay, it in no way indicates the amount of aid you will receive. Skyuka Hall does its best to meet the needs of our families while maintaining and ensuring small student-to-teacher ratios.
Our ability to offer financial aid is affected by annual fund contributions each year. While your tuition dollars are applied directly toward the education of your student, due to the small student-to-teacher ratio, these dollars do not cover the full cost of a Skyuka Hall education.
Financial aid awards will be indicated in your re-enrollment or new student packet. To apply for 2017-2018 financial aid, please follow the links below. The financial aid application is online only. If you have any questions, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply for financial aid for reenrolling students for the 2017-2018 school year is February 28, 2017.
