The Buckley School offers financial assistance to families with demonstrated need based on an evaluation by School and Student Services By NAIS (SSS). Awards are made by the school’s Financial Aid Committee to students who qualify for aid on the basis of financial need, and who in the school’s judgment are able to make a significant contribution to the Buckley community through their academic accomplishments, talents, and personal attributes. Our review process involves applying consistent principles across all applicants to determine the families most in need of a financial aid grant.
SSS is an independent needs assessment program used by thousands of independent schools nationwide. Families interested in applying for such assistance may begin the process of applying for aid on November 1, 2013 by completing the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) online at sss.nais.org. This form gathers in one place the relevant information about your family size, income, expenses, and more so that schools can calculate financial need and determine the actual financial aid grant. SSS analyses the information on the PFS to estimate your family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses.
