The Saklan School is a member of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid organization (SSS) that assists schools in making awards to families who demonstrate need. The school considers a wide range of factors ranging from assets and income to family size, monthly expenditures, or even caretaking of an elderly parent. Award amounts are determined based on a family’s need and on the availability of funds at The Saklan School.
The Indexed Tuition Committee will review all requests and supporting materials submitted. Applications will continue to be accepted until the available pool of aid is depleted. Families who have submitted forms by the January deadline will be notified of awards in February of 2021 for returning families and March of 2021 for new families. Returning families must reapply each year.
