Affording Lincoln School

Financial Aid Program

Lincoln School seeks to enroll a diverse and talented student body, and Lincoln’s strong commitment to its financial aid program—available to students from Nursery through Grade 12—supports this mission. Lincoln believes that qualified students should have the opportunity to attend an independent school regardless of their family's financial situation.

Typically, more families apply for financial assistance than can be funded in the first round of admission decisions. In the event that funds become available later, some applicants on the waitlist might then become eligible for financial aid assistance.

Applying for Financial Aid

SSS (School & Student Services), an independent organization partnered with NAIS (the National Association of Independent Schools), processes Lincoln’s financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you provide in the online application, SSS estimates the amount your family can contribute to educational expenses and shares this with the school to help make fair and objective financial aid decisions. To begin your financial aid application, follow the steps outlined below.

Step One

To begin your financial aid application visit School and Student Services. Once there, click on the prompt to begin your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). If you have more than 1 child at (or applying to) Lincoln School, you need only complete one PFS.

Please note: You do not have to complete the PFS in one sitting. You will be given a password so you can save your PFS and return to finish it at another time.

Step Two

Follow the instructions you are provided regarding uploading required financial documents (federal tax returns, W-2 forms, etc). You will be prompted to submit and pay for your application prior to being able to upload tax documents.

Your documents will be handled with the highest level of security.
