Families may request financial assistance by contacting our financial office. AIE uses PSAS (Private School Aide Service) as a uniform method of determining need for our families. Filling out and submitting the required financial PSAS form is the first step in this process. This can be done electronically and our financial office has the information required to help you get started. Families may also write a letter giving specific circumstances that explains why the request for assistance is being made. After the financial office receives the necessary information from PSAS, (usually about a two week-time period), families are notified by the school if they qualify for assistance. The amount of assistance offered to each family is then determined by several factors and not solely on need. Consideration to monies available for scholarship, the number of families requesting and qualifying for assistance, and space available must be taken into account. It is always our goal to help as many individuals as we possibly can.
