The Benjamin School is committed to educating talented children, regardless of their family's financial situation. A family's ability to afford tuition has no bearing on the qualification process for admission to The Benjamin School. Once a child has been offered admission, we are committed to working with the family to try to meet the expenses of an independent school education.
The Benjamin School's first commitment is to enrolled families currently receiving financial assistance, and then awards are granted to newly-qualified financial aid applicants. Financial assistance is limited, and applications submitted in a timely fashion receive priority.
All information pertaining to financial assistance is kept confidential and all families receiving financial assistance are expected to contribute to tuition expenses. Students who will be considered for a financial aid award must be free of academic or citizenship probationary status during that current school year. If the School places a student on academic or citizenship probation, the discussion of future financial aid awards will be postponed until sustained improvement is noted and the student is removed from probationary status.
To be considered for financial assistance, families must complete an application from Smart Aid. Smart Aid is a division of Smart Tuition, which provides supportive tuition management services to independent schools across the country.
Smart Aid's online application and instructions will be available beginning in November for the following school year. Parents can apply online by going to the Smart Aid website after receiving a financial assistance application packet from our Business Office. Please contact Pam Didio at 561.472.3474 or email@example.com to request an application packet or answer any questions you may have. Financial aid applications should be completed online with Smart Aid along with required documents by March 15. Applications filed after the deadline will be considered if aid is still available.
After submitting your online application and all required supporting documents, Smart Aid will provide Benjamin an estimate of how much you are able to pay toward tuition costs. The estimated amount is not a guarantee of financial assistance; rather it serves as a guideline for the school's financial aid committee when reviewing applications.
