Financial Aid Application

We offer need-based assistance to families who demonstrate need through our financial aid application process. The process of applying for financial aid at Northside runs parallel to our admission process, but they are, by design, two separate applications. Each application is assessed individually, and applications for continued assistance are filed annually. The application process takes into account many aspects of a family’s finances, including expenses, assets, debts, and income. Decisions about admission and financial aid are made separately, but information about your financial aid application will accompany your enrollment contract.

Our application for financial aid opens each October. Applications and supporting materials, including the previous year’s complete federal tax return, are due by December 1 of each year for current families and December 31 of each year for new families. Additional documentation is also required for business owners and self-employed individuals. Northside will always give priority to the families that have completed their paperwork on time.

You may also submit an additional statement through SSS to explain your family’s financial situation to the Northside Financial Aid Committee.

Northside partners with School and Student Services (SSS) to facilitate the financial aid application process. Please visit the SSS Family Resource Center to learn how to start an account with SSS, complete the Parent Financial Statement (PFS), upload the necessary supporting documents, and pay and submit your application. There is a $60 application fee.

PLEASE NOTE: Applicants must provide all supporting documents directly to SSS, and to ensure that your application is linked with Northside, please use the following school code when asked: 142877.

If you have any questions about eligibility or any aspects of the financial aid application, please reach out for a confidential conversation with Admissions!

Financial Aid FAQ's

 

Payment Options

Northside offers families the option to select a payment plan that works best for them upon enrollment. Tuition is payable in full or in three installments after the initial non-refundable tuition deposit: April 1, July 1, and September 1. An 8-month tuition payment plan is also available. 

Tuition Refund Plan

Since the financial commitment of enrollment is for an entire year, Northside offers a Tuition Refund Plan. For a charge of 4 percent of the total tuition, parents may insure themselves against liability for unused tuition. View more information about our Tuition Refund Plan.
