Financial Aid FAQs

Jennifer Bechtel

The Hill School’s Financial Aid Committee grants awards to families according to their level of demonstrated financial need, as determined by School & Student Services (SSS). The Committee reviews all cases individually in determining final awards.

Parents/guardians must visit School and Student Services (SSS) and complete a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and then submit/upload all required documentation.

The Parent Financial Statement and 2016 federal tax returns and schedules are due no later than January 15, 2019 for NEW and RETURNING families. Note: If you will be unable to meet this deadline, please contact Chris Bala at cbala@thehill.org to explain your circumstances.

No. Families are required to submit financial paperwork EACH year they have a child (or children) enrolled at The Hill School. The Financial Aid Committee is committed to supporting our families who qualify for their entire time at Hill, but they will reevaluate the demonstrated need of every family each year.

The Financial Aid Committee will consider certain forms of debt when determining financial aid awards, for example, past educational debts of parents or debts amassed thru necessary medical procedures/prolonged illnesses. Typically, the Committee does not recognize the following: mortgages, business or car loans, or consumer credit card debt. The Hill School’s Financial Aid program is not in a position to subsidize lifestyle choices deemed to be unnecessary.

These questions are intended to help our Financial Aid Committee to understand a family’s ability to afford educational expenses. When estimating what your contribution will be towards The Hill School, please do not enter zero unless that figure is entirely accurate. The Hill School believes strongly that each family should contribute to their child(ren)’s education whenever and however possible.
