Need-Based Financial Aid Information
The Awty International School seeks to enroll qualified students who will be successful in our programs and who will add to the diversity of our school community. Financial assistance is awarded to families whose financial circumstance would generally preclude their child(ren) from attending The Awty International School or for whom the total school expenses are greater than his or her family's ability to pay them. Financial assistance is available for students entering 1st grade and above.
Financial Aid is available to qualified students regardless of race, gender, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin. Applications for admission to The Awty International School and admission decisions are independent of applications for financial assistance.
Families wishing to be considered for financial assistance must submit the online Parent Financial Statement (PFS) through the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS) by February 20, 2013. In order to complete the financial aid application process parents must also complete and submit the Awty Financial Aid Application and a copy of their 2012 W-2 forms, 1040s, and all schedules of the 2012 tax return to SSS no later than February 27, 2013. If this is the first year you are requesting financial assistance from The Awty International School, please also submit a copy of your 2011 tax return, including all schedules and W-2 forms.
We will communicate financial aid decisions in April 2013. Any PFS received after February 20 or files not complete by February 27 will be considered if funds are still available. Decisions for late requests will be communicated in May 2013.
