Financial Assistance at Princeton Junior School allows for an economically diverse student population including a strong representation from middle income families and is awarded on the basis of financial need.
Prospective families who are interested in Financial Assistance must first submit an admissions application and be accepted to school before their TADS application can be considered. Admissions decisions are made separately from financial assistance decisions. The financial needs of returning families are met first. Remaining funds are then awarded to new families. Financial assistance is not available for Full Year Packages. The TADS application process must be reviewed each year for continued assistance for the following year.
Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) is used to assess the information provided in each financial aid application. Award decisions are determined by the Princeton Junior School Financial Aid Committee based on the information provided by parents to TADS. TADS application information is considered confidential.
In addition, the Juliana McIntyre Fenn Grant program, initiated by our co-founder, and supported by the Geraldine Nazzaro Scholarship Fund, provides assistance to families who otherwise would not qualify for a need-based program. First, a family must articulate a need, and, if there are funds available, a grant may be awarded to help mitigate the cost of a PJS education.
