Financial Aid

Financial Aid Philosophy

In keeping with Indian Creek School’s Mission, the School seeks students from various economic backgrounds as part of its diverse community. Financial Aid is available to qualified families of students from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade to make Indian Creek a viable educational option. The Financial Aid program is designed to bridge gaps that may remain between the tuition and the amount the family can pay after making tuition payment one of their top spending priorities. Application for financial aid is held in strict confidence and has no bearing on admission decisions.

Applying for Financial Aid for 2017-18 

There are three basic steps in the financial aid application process. 

Step 1.  Please complete the ICS Financial Aid Request Form: ICS Financial Aid Request Form. This is a brief set of questions that goes directly to the ICS financial aid office and for which there is no charge. 

Step 2.  Apply through SSS, the financial aid service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Applications are now being accepted by SSS for the  2017-18 school year.  Please be sure you apply for 2017-18 school year at this time.

It is the school’s policy to consider both parents’ financial resources in evaluating need. Separated/divorced/never married parents must each file a separate PFS and all supporting financial documents with SSS.  For exceptions, please see How to Apply for Financial Aid 2017-18

Please find links to more information on how to apply on the sidebar of this page. 

Step 3.  Upload required tax documents directly to your SSS application.  Your 2015 documents are due when you submit your PFS. This includes your 2015 W2s and your 2015 IRS Form 1040 and all associated schedules. Your 2016 tax documents should be uploaded as soon as they are available, but no later than April 21, 2017.
