MPH recognizes that parents are making an important decision in choosing an independent education for their child, yet each family approaches this decision differently. While some are fortunate enough to be able to afford the cost of enrollment, others are concerned that tuition might be out of their reach. MPH is committed to working with families to help break down the myths and assumptions surrounding the cost of independent education, and for those who qualify for financial assistance, we offer tuition grants, scholarships and monthly payment plans that help families to manage the cost of enrollment.
Applying for Financial Aid
Thousands of independent schools provide financial assistance to ensure that the students they’ve admitted have a realistic chance to enroll. MPH partners with School & Student Services, a subset of the National Association of Independent Schools, to offer a financial aid application that helps to identify each family’s unique need-level. Many families mistakenly assume they will not qualify for financial aid based on their income, but there is no specific income-level at which a family is no longer eligible for aid. Eligibility is based on many factors, so you should always investigate the possibility of receiving financial aid if you feel you cannot pay the cost of enrollment yourself.
The SSS application for aid is called the Parents Financial Statement, and it can be completed at any time once an application for admission has been submitted to Manlius Pebble Hill School.* The Office of Admissions will provide you with information about your eligibility upon receipt of the Parents Financial Statement, and if you qualify for assistance, will provide information about the types of assistance available for the grade level you are applying to.
*Please note that there is a $41 fee to submit the Parents Financial Statement through SSS.
Monthly Payment Plans
MPH offers several payment plans to help manage the cost of enrollment. We have partnered with FACTS Tuition Management to offer 10 and 12-month payment plans, as well as options to pay in one or two lump-installments. These payment plans help families to budget the cost of enrollment on a schedule that works best for them.
