Tuition/Financial Aid

Meeting the costs of a private education is a major investment for many families. It requires planning and a strong commitment. We have listed the costs here for the 2014-2015 academic year to help you in your budgeting and decision-making. 

You should not be discouraged from applying to PHS because of financial concerns. The school has funds available to assist families who are unable to pay the full tuition costs. PHS has a strong preference for awarding partial financial aid grants and seldom awards grants that cover the full cost of tuition. Financial aid awards do not cover the costs for lunch, dues or books and supplies. We believe that parents have the obligation to finance their child’s education to the maximum extent that they are able.

PHS is committed to need-based financial aid. PHS provides over $2.6 million each year in need-based financial assistance to 22 percent of the school’s students. While the school has a large financial aid budget, we regret we are unable to help all students who apply.

While the school does grant several small academic scholarships each year, there are no scholarships for students with special athletic or artistic talents. To determine need, Pembroke Hill uses the services of the FACTS Grant and Needs Assessment .
