Please complete and return the Financial Aid Information Request card that you receive with our admission materials. Financial aid forms are mailed to interested families in December, though an application can be started earlier. The Parents Financial Statement (PFS) form must be submitted to the School and Student Service (SSS) for Financial Aid by January 10, 2017. A copy of the 2016 1040 with all schedules, and W-2 form(s) or 1099 statements for all working adults in the household are required to be received by Pike no later than February 13, 2017.
The calculation of need is based on a formula including income and family expenses, assets and liabilities, family size, parents’ ages, cost of living, and the number of children for whom a family must pay tuition. Pike’s Financial Aid Committee reviews the information received from SSS, combines it with tax and any explanatory material provided, and formulates an individual calculation of funds that a family can contribute toward tuition. The amount of a financial aid grant is designed to bridge the gap between a family’s contribution and Pike’s tuition.
Pike has a comprehensive secondary school placement program that begins in Grade 7. Click here for more information.
