Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Affording Presentation

Economic diversity is an important goal at Presentation. Our ability to attract students from a broad array of economic backgrounds helps us provide a richer educational and social experience for our school community.

Approximately 30% of our current families pay tuition below the top of the tuition scale, making a Presentation education accessible to a wide range of economic circumstances.

Tuition Assistance Policy

The Board of Directors and school administration of The Presentation School is committed to providing tuition assistance to our families. The Presentation School’s Tuition Assistance Committee (TAC) is dedicated to four principles when making and communicating tuition assistance decisions - Confidentiality, Objectivity, Fairness, and Equity.

TPS utilizes “FAST” (Financial Aid for School Tuition) to help determine awards for tuition assistance applicants. TPS requires parents to complete the online FAST application each year assistance is requested. Once the application is complete, FAST verifies the applicant’s information and determines the suggested financial assistance award based on the submitted data and documentation parents provide in the application. In the case of divorced or separated parents, both parents are required to submit an application via FAST.

The School, through TAC, reviews the application, the FAST recommendation and determines the assistance award. In some cases, the school may require additional information from families to best determine the tuition assistance award.

Until TPS’s committee has received the complete FAST application (which requires you to upload your completed tax returns) and the supporting documentation, it will be unable to process a family’s request for financial assistance.

It is important for families to understand that once available funds for the upcoming year have been allocated, the school does not have the ability to make more funds available than what has already been allotted for tuition assistance. The school may not consider late or incomplete requests for financial assistance.

All requested materials must be submitted to FAST no later than the due dates below to be considered for tuition assistance.
