Need-Based Financial Aid

The Tatnall School is committed to ensuring that an excellent independent education is accessible to as many qualified students as possible. Tatnall partners with School and Student Services (SSS) through the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to analyze a family’s eligibility for tuition assistance. Tatnall's financial aid grants are based on demonstrated financial need without regard to gender, race, religion, or ethnicity. 

Prospective families should complete a Personal Financial Statement (PFS) through the SSS website prior to completion of the application process in order to be considered for a financial aid grant. It is strongly recommended that applications be submitted no later than January 2, 2019, as the majority of enrollment decisions are made in January. 

Returning families should complete their Personal Financial Statement (PFS) by December 14, 2018.

Tatnall's school code for SSS is 7624.
