Factors for Determining Financial Aid Awards
- Awards are based both on the funds available and on each family’s need relative to the needs of others applying.
- The Committee considers the finances of all family members, including parents, step-parents, guardians, domestic partners, and other relatives when applicable.
- Total family income, assets, expenditures, and economic lifestyle choices are included in financial aid calculations.
- Roland Park Country School expects both of the parents of financial-aid applicants to be employed full-time unless there are very young children at home or other circumstances preventing employment.
- The Committee considers the impact of siblings enrolled in other tuition-charging institutions.
- Roland Park Country School addresses the needs of its returning families prior to reviewing the needs of families with prospective students.
Policies for Financial Aid Administration
Every family, regardless of need, is asked to contribute a portion of tuition costs.
Divorced Parents Policy: In the case of divorce, both parents are required to complete a financial aid application regardless of custody or legal financial arrangements. The Financial Aid Committee will consider the assets of both parents before making any award decision. In situations where the custodial parent has remarried, the committee will also consider the assets of the step-parent within the context of the step-parent’s financial obligations to his or her own children.
Documentation Policy: The Financial Aid Committee requires financial documentation from parents, guardians, domestic partners, and step-parents before making any award decision. These individuals may submit their financial information together on one application, or they may choose to submit the required information by completing separate financial aid applications.
Full-Pay Families Applying for Financial Aid in Subsequent Years: When families choose to enroll a student at Roland Park Country School and pay tuition in full, it is the School’s understanding and expectation that the family will continue to do so in subsequent years. If there is a significant, unanticipated change in a family’s financial circumstances after enrolling a student at RPCS, the Financial Aid Committee will consider a subsequent application for aid. The Committee will require submission of tax returns and supporting documentation from the current year. Unless a significant change can be demonstrated clearly in the required documentation, the family will not be eligible to receive financial aid.
In addition to need-based financial aid awards, Roland Park Country School is proud to offer merit scholarships to both current and new incoming students grades 6-12 who embody the abilities and values that represent the excellence of the RPCS community and mission.
