Buckley offers financial aid based on demonstrated need beginning in Nursery. Requests for assistance do not affect admissions decisions or a current student's place in the school community. All financial information is held in the strictest confidence.
Buckley uses School and Student Services (SSS), provided by the National Association of Independent Schools, to process financial aid applications and help determine need. Based on the financial information you submit, SSS will report to us an estimated amount your family can contribute towards tuition. This helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions. SSS applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be available beginning October 24, 2017.
- January 15, 2017 – complete SSS application online.
- March 1, 2017 – submit backup documents (see below). All information will be handled with the utmost level of security.
- After these deadline dates, financial aid applications will be considered only if there are funds available.
- Go to sssbynais.org/parents
- Click on the prompt to begin your Parents' Financial Statement (PFS). You only have to complete one PFS even if you have more than one child applying to our school. The Buckley school code is 1942.
- You will be given a password to allow you to return to your PFS at a later date before submitting it.
- Submit these backup documents:
- a copy of your completed and signed 2015 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (1040)
- all 1040 schedules and W-2 statements
