Financial Aid decisions are based on need, with preference given to students already enrolled at Escuela. The financial aid program of the school serves as a way of assisting the school in providing socio-economic, racial and cultural diversity in its student body. The school has rarely, if ever, provided total tuition assistance to any one student. Rather, we try to help as many families as possible by providing partial assistance. If your family has a special circumstance or need, please provide a letter of explanation to the school.
Escuela del Sol uses the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). SSS provides an objective and consistent method of determining a family's ability to contribute to educational expenses through the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS). This form is available online. To complete a PFS for Escuela, you will need to use the school's code - 3036. Once completed and processed, SSS sends Escuela an assessment of need. This assessment is what we use to determine aid awards. If you have questions regarding this process, please do not hesitate to call our office at 505-242-3033.
The deadline for completing an application to SSS for the 2013-2014 academic year is Friday, March 15, 2013.
