The PRISMS Financial Aid assessment process ensures that available funds are best used to promote the schools’ objectives and mission. PRISMS is proud to offer need-based financial aid to those students with a demonstrated financial need.
When considering an independent education for their child, families should expect to contribute to the cost of tuition at the highest possible level based on their current economic situation. PRISMS offers need-based financial aid, which is determined by a family’s demonstrated need and the merit of the applicant, which is determined by the PRISMS Admission Committee. To fairly and objectively determine a family’s demonstrated need and make financial aid decisions, PRISMS, subscribes to TADS, a third party financial aid assessment organization. PRISMS School Code is NJ302000000. Instructions on how to apply are found on the TADS website.
Once a family submits a financial application, TADS provides a third party assessment and estimate of how much a family can contribute to the cost of a PRISMS education. This figure and estimate provides a basis in determining financial need. The PRISMS Financial Aid Committee receives a Financial Assessment from TADS and uses this report, along with a family’s tax returns to calculate a financial aid award. In determining a financial aid award the Financial Aid Committee will look at each application on an individual and case-by-case basis taking into account extenuating circumstances.
