"Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation." - John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), Thirty-fifth President of the United States

Financial Assistance

Financial Aid applications are due by Jan. 25th. but will continue to be accepted after that date with awards granted  based on available resources.

In effecting an appropriate tuition assistance process, PRIED is working with the experienced team at Independent School Management, ISM – to facilitate the financial aid assistance application and review. The program is called Financial Aid for School Tuition, FAST.

FAST reviews relevant application materials and provides PRIED a need-based financial aid analysis. This ensures that our process adheres to nationally established standards. All information related to FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family’s financial aid request.

The FAST program is designed to be very responsive to families. To ease the online application process, FAST provides 24/7 help desk support. On-line communications are accessible as well. FAST is flexible in terms of the information it will accommodate and allows families to more accurately represent their own particular circumstances. Tuition-assistance metrics relative to other independent schools in our region are used.

Please note that based on changes in each school year (e.g. number of students, number of students applying for financial aid, fund raising resources, etc.), financial aid grants are made for one year only and therefore families must reapply each year.

The application process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program, allowing you to partially complete an application, going back to it at another time. The charge for the application is $38.00, to be paid by credit card at the end of the session. For more details on the applicatin process, please view the Parent User Guides (English | Spanish)
