Georgetown Prep is committed to building a collaborative relationship with prospective and current families as they plan for the financial realities associated with their son's high school education. Prep does not offer academic or athletic scholarships, reserving all aid for those who have a demonstrated financial need. The decision to apply for financial aid has no bearing on the admissions process. Admissions decisions are need blind. About 26% of Prep students receive financial aid with an average grant of $19,000. Please refer to the information below to guide you through the financial aid process.
Applying for Financial Aid
|*New for 2013-14*|
Georgetown Prep has employed TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) for our financial aid application process and assessment. TADS has a great reputation for helping families throughout the aid process and application submission. We are now accepting aid applications for the 2014-15 school year.

Apply on time. This is the most important thing you can do to increase your chances of receiving an aid award. If you think there is any chance your family will choose Georgetown Prep, apply for financial aid at the same time you apply for admission. DO NOT wait until your son is admitted to apply for financial aid. Often financial aid funds are spoken for at this point.
Returning students must submit the aid application online by December 14, 2013.
Prospective students must submit the aid application online by January 10, 2014.
Know the Requirements. Families need to submit the online aid application and completed 2012 tax forms (including 1040's, W-2's, and any other documentation related to income or estimated income) to TADS by the deadlines indicated above. Furthermore, 2013 tax documentation must be submitted to TADS as soon as it is available. Forms can be uploaded, emailed or faxed to TADS. Families can access TADS at any time to check the status of their application.
