It is important for families to make a commitment to the school by participating financially to the fullest extent possible. If, after exploring their resources, a family is still not able to afford the full cost of tuition, they are encouraged to apply for financial aid available for families with students in Stage II through Grade 12. Families with a child entering Stage I for five full days are also eligible for financial aid if they have another child enrolled in Stage II through Grade 12. Approximately one-third of our students receive some type of financial aid, and the average award is $9,000.Roeper uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process our financial aid applications and based on the financial information provided by families, it estimates the amount the family can contribute to educational expenses. Factors considered include total income, assets, net worth and discretionary income. The Roeper Scholarship and Financial Aid Committee reviews both the SSS report and required backup documentation - most recent federal income tax return and W-2s or most recent pay stubs - to make their decision. The grants are given for one year of tuition. Forms and documentation need to be submitted again before each school year, at which time the requests are reevaluated. Rewards rarely cover more than 50% of the tuition. For the children of divorced or separated parents, a PFS form must be completed for the household of each biological parent including income information for step-parents or guardians. A non-custodial parent must complete a PFS even if he or she is not required to pay child support. This requirement may be waived if the whereabouts of the non-custodial parent is unknown.Families are encouraged to begin their financial aid applications as early as possible in the admissions process by submitting the on-line Parent Financial Statement. Roeper will provide assistance for families who do not have access to the online form.
The Roeper School offers only need-based scholarships. The submission of a PFS and backup documentation as outlined above is required. There are also scholarship specific requirements. The Admissions Office can advise applicants as to the availability of scholarships and eligibility requirements. All recipients must successfully complete the standard entry requirements for the school. The Roeper Scholarship and Financial Aid Committee makes the final determinations.
