FLEXIBLE TUITION

FOR PEREGRINE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS

Peregrine Elementary School recognizes that paying for a private school education can be a challenge for families. We are committed to keeping our elementary program accessible to families from a range of economic backgrounds. To achieve this goal, Peregrine Elementary School (K-6) offers flexible tuition families who apply and demonstrate financial need. Flexible Tuition is not available for the ECC.

WHAT IS FLEXIBLE TUITION? 
Our Flexible Tuition Program provides families enrolling in grades K-6, from those who can only afford the minimum tuition to those who can afford almost full tuition, with the opportunity to apply for reduced tuition. 


Flexible Tuition ranges from 20% to 95% of full tuition. To determine each family’s ability to pay, Peregrine Elementary School partners with TADS, a third party financial aid evaluation service. TADS considers numerous factors including income, assets, family size, number of children in tuition-charging schools and unusual expenses e.g., care of an elderly parent. Due to our limited resources, we may not be able to offer flexible tuition to every student who qualifies for both admission and a reduced tuition.

THE APPLICATION

Before submitting an official application to TADS, we highly recommend filling out the Financial Aid Application Worksheet. Although the worksheet cannot be accepted as an official application, it will be extremely helpful in preparing you for it. The worksheet also lists supporting documentation that you will need for the official application.

Once you have completed the worksheet, fill out the official TADS Flexible Tuition Application. 

 

The flexible tuition application for 2021-22 opens on March 8, 2021.

The Priority Deadline for 2021-2022 is April 9, 2021.

TADS is available to assist you with questions in filling out your application or to check the status of your application through the following:

IS MY FAMILY ELIGIBLE FOR FLEXIBLE TUITION? 

We cannot determine the level of tuition award until the family submits an official completed application.

 

IF A FAMILY PARTICIPATES IN THE FLEXIBLE TUITION PROGRAM THIS YEAR, DOES THE FAMILY STAY IN THE PROGRAM UNTIL GRADUATION?  

To remain in the Flexible Tuition Program, the family must reapply each year. Provided family circumstances remain the same and Peregrine Elementary School’s resources can continue to support the program to the same extent, Peregrine Elementary School intends to fund the student for the duration of their time here.

Frequently Asked Questions

IN THE CASE OF FAMILIES WITH TWO HOUSEHOLDS (I.E., DIVORCED, SEPARATED) OR UNMARRIED PARTNERS IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD, DO BOTH HOUSEHOLDS OR BOTH PARENTS/GUARDIANS HAVE TO SUBMIT FINANCIAL INFORMATION? 

Yes.  All households must participate in the application process, and provide financial information along with the last year's tax documents i.e., 1040, W-2, and relevant schedules, for consideration in the Flexible Tuition Program. Peregrine Elementary School determines ability to pay by factoring in all available resources from parents, step-parents, and unmarried partners, regardless of custody or other legal issues. If you have questions based on your specific situation, please call our Admissions Administrator at (530) 753-5500.
