Applying for Financial Aid

WELCOME! Our Preliminary Application for 2024-25 Is Now Closed

Financial aid is critical to Poly Prep’s mission, providing access to families who would not otherwise be able to attend. For the 2022-2023 academic year, over 20% of the students share in more than $10,500,000 in financial aid.

In a typical year, we are able to offer tuition support to a percentage of families who qualify for aid, though we receive significantly more requests than we are able to fulfill.  Our financial aid awards are based on need. Families applying to ALL grades may submit a separate application for financial aid through CLARITY. See how to get started.

Financial Aid Application and Deadlines

Financial Aid Application materials for the 2023-2024 academic year will be available on September 1, 2022 in CLARITY.

  • Poly Prep requires the CLARITY financial aid application for all families requesting consideration for need-based financial assistance; only online financial aid applications will be accepted. Find out more about applying for financial aid with Clarity.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Applicants must provide all supporting documents directly to CLARITY by December 15, 2023. Financial aid applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

Current Poly Prep Families:
For families currently receiving financial aid, the financial aid application is due each year by November 15. Both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete the required online application.
