The Oxford Academy uses the School and Student Services (SSS) to process our financial aid applications. SSS is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. Based on the financial information you provide, SSS gives us an estimated amount that your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions. To begin your financial aid application for the upcoming enrollment year, please follow the steps below:
1. As early as December 1, go to the Parent Financial Statement (PFS) online at
https://www.solutionsbysss.com/using Oxford Academy school code #5624.
2. Click on the prompt to begin your Parents' Financial Statement (PFS). You only need to complete one PFS even if you have several children applying to our school.
3. You will be given an username and password that will allow you to return to your PFS at a later date before submitting it. Your information will be secure.
4. You will be given instructions about submitting supporting documents. At Oxford, we require the following supporting documents from all families for 2016
a. A complete copy of your most recent tax return as soon as it is complete.
b. A copy of all W2's
c. Business tax returns for those who own their own businesses.
d. Additional documentation may be required as we evaluate your file. Please Note: If you apply for financial aid online, your information will be delivered accurately and quickly to our school, allowing us to make a quicker decision about your eligibility for financial aid. Please follow the instructions for how to upload the required supporting documents or how to mail your information to School and Student Services.
Please Note: Meeting all deadlines is an important part of the process. Late information can jeopardize an award. Returning families are required to follow this application process as well. Financial aid is awarded annually and for one year at a time.
In the case of separated or divorced parents, Oxford Academy requires a completed PFS from both natural parents. In addition, remarriage or cohabitation with another adult by either parent that creates a new family relationship is also required to follow the same process. An application with only one PFS will be considered incomplete and will delay the process. If you would like to discuss your particular situation, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office. This can be a complex and confusing process so please contact us with any questions you may have.
