Tuition and Affordability
We encourage all interested families to apply.
We recognize that an independent school education is a significant financial commitment, an investment that lasts a lifetime. To ensure that Mid-Pen is affordable for all admitted students, we offer a robust Tuition Assistance program which meets the needs of a wide range of financial circumstances.
We use the School and Student Services (SSS) financial aid system to evaluate and process all tuition assistance applications. Each application is evaluated on a case by case base basis, using a holistic approach to best consider every family’s unique financial situation.
Starting mid-February, our Tuition Assistance Committee reviews all completed tuition assistance files and makes decisions based upon each family’s demonstrated need using calculations from the tuition assistance application hosted by School and Student Services (SSS) and tax documents. The Committee may require additional documentation if more information is needed in order to understand a family’s financial situation.
The application and required documentation must be received by the deadlines to be eligible for full consideration. A complete tuition assistance application consists of the following information:
January 7, 2019 - Current Families - Submit your Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS) online.
January 10, 2019 - Prospective Families -Submit your Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS) online.
February 8, 2019 - The following required documents should be sent directly to SSS, not to Mid-Pen:
A copy of your completed and signed 1040 Federal Income Tax forms from the past two years, including all W-2(s) and schedules.
Business owners should also submit a copy of a Business/Farm Statement as well as all Federal Income Tax Forms for the past year and schedules for each business owned.
In cases of separated or divorced parents, each parent needs to complete a PFS and send their own set of required documents.

Online Application Tips:
You only have to complete one PFS even if you have several children applying to our school.
You will be given a password that will allow you to return to your PFS at a later date before submitting it.
You will be given instructions about submitting required backup documents. Your documents will be handled with the utmost level of security. Documents can be sent electronically or by mail. In either case please include the PFS cover sheet , which can be found when you login into your School and Student Services account.
