FINANCIAL AID

Philosophy and Purpose
It is the goal of Proctor Academy’s Admissions office to enroll a talented, motivated, passionate and diverse student body. The financial aid program supports deserving students who are unable to afford a Proctor education without financial assistance. Financial aid is need-based.
 
The Financial Aid Process
Admissions and financial aid are separate processes. Admissions decisions are never based upon a family’s ability to pay. Once a student is admitted, the Financial Aid Committee determines whether the school will be able to meet the need of the family. Need is defined as the difference between a family’s discretionary resources and the cost of educating the student. Although the school grants $4,000,000 in financial aid to approximately 35% of the student body, we are unable to offer financial aid to every qualified applicant. Therefore, some students will be admitted to Proctor without financial aid. Financial aid decisions are made in conjunction with the March 10th Admissions notification date.
 
Determination of Awards
Proctor’s need-based financial assistance program is guided by the National Association of Independent Schools’ “Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid Administration.” Clarity uses a family’s financial information and applies it to a formula to estimate what a family can contribute towards the cost of education. The financial aid committee makes a final determination taking into account Clarity’s estimate and each family’s resources and individual circumstances. Families should identify all possible resources for funding a Proctor education before seeking financial assistance from the school.
