Financial Information

Manlius Pebble Hill School is committed to working with families to make enrollment possible.  You may be surprised to learn that roughly 50% of MPH students receive some type of financial help from the School. Realizing that nothing is more important than a child’s education, we offer a comprehensive program to help families of qualified applicants manage the cost of enrollment. The Office of Admissions works closely with each family during the admissions process to determine eligibility for financial assistance and scholarships.

Financial Assistance & Merit Scholarships

  • Financial Assistance is available at all grade levels and is awarded to families who cannot afford the full cost of enrollment. To apply for financial assistance, parents complete the Parents’ Financial Statement through School & Student Services (SSS), a subset of the National Association of Independent Schools, after submitting their application to MPH.  The Office of Admissions will review eligibility for financial assistance and will make every effort to meet each family’s demonstrated need.
  • Merit Scholarships (Middle & Upper School) are available for students applying to Grade 6 and up who demonstrate exemplary academic ability or who possess special talent in dance, music or art.  Merit scholarships are available as part of financial assistance packages, but can also be awarded to families without financial-need.  A portfolio and essay are required to be considered for merit scholarships, and the Office of Admissions will provide additional instructions on submitting these items once you have submitted an application to MPH. Completed scholarship applications are reviewed occur at the end of each month beginning in February and continuing until funds are no longer available.

While we do our best to help as many families as possible, our resources are ultimately limited.  For that reason, we strongly recommend that you apply to MPH as early as possible for the best chance of receiving financial assistance or scholarships.
