To apply for financial aid:
- Visit School & Student Services (SSS) to complete the PFS (Parents' Financial Statement) by December 15, 2023. (Note: returning families' applications are due by December 1, 2023.)
- The SSS school code for the Abraham Joshua Heschel School is 1032.
- Upload copies of your most recent tax return and W-2 forms.
- All applicants will also need to fill out the Financial Aid Supplemental Questionnaire.
- Requests for financial aid must be marked on the application for admission. Requests made at a later date or in subsequent years will only be considered if there are significant changes in a family’s circumstances. Financial assistance cannot be guaranteed unless all information is received on or before December 15, 2023 for new families (or on or before December 1, 2023 for returning families).
- Awards are final only after receipt of the current year’s IRS 1040 tax return.
All information submitted is confidential.
The Heschel School subscribes to the principles of Fair Practice for the Administration of Financial Aid as outlined by NAIS (National Association of independent Schools). The goal of admitting a diverse population of highly qualified students implies a commitment to substantial financial aid. Aid is awarded without regard to race, nationality or ethnic origin.
Financial aid funding comes from the generosity of donors to our Annual Fund and through the work of many parents on various fundraising activities, including the Annual Campaign, Auction, and Benefit Dinner.
