Parish Episcopal School seeks to attract and maintain a diverse and talented student body and is committed to providing financial assistance to students who qualify. Need-based assistance is granted on the basis of demonstrated need and the availability of funds each year.
Parish follows the guidelines of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third-party organization that analyzes the financial situation of applicants based on a number of factors. It is difficult to predict whether a family will qualify for financial aid, as circumstances vary widely and the overall demand for financial aid may vary year to year.
