Financial Aid

Just under 20% of Priory families receive financial assistance. A pool of more than $2.5 million is available for need-based grants, and most awards cover part but not all of tuition and expenses. All financial aid is need-based; the Priory does not provide merit-based scholarships. Financial Aid awards are grants, not loans, so they do not need to be repaid.

The size of individual awards is based on the determined need and funds available in the school's financial aid budget. Priory partners with School and Student Services (SSS), a non-profit organization that provides an independent report on each financial aid applicant based on information that applicant enters. Families receive notice of financial aid awards with their acceptance letters in March. Families are asked to re-apply each year, and awards may be adjusted as family circumstances change.

Applications for Financial Aid include two deadlines:
  • The Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and 2016 Federal Tax Returns - including 1040, W-2's, and all schedules - submitted to SSS by January 11, 2018.
  • Your 2017 Federal Tax Returns - including your 1040, W-2's, and all schedules - must be uploaded to SSS by February 15th, 2018.
To apply for Financial Aid, begin by clicking on the blue "Apply for Financial Aid" button at the top right or go directly to to create your SSS account.

Access Program

The Access program is a program established by the Priory to assist and ensure that students of color who are economically challenged receive equal access to all programs at Priory. Students admitted into the Access program receive several wraparound services including books, school supplies, transportation to/from school, tutoring if needed, college tours, and a scholarship for a school-sponsored international trip.
