Our financial aid application deadline of January 15 has passed and at this time we are no longer accepting financial aid applications for the upcoming school year.
 
Palmer Trinity School awards over $2 million dollars in need-based financial aid. Need-based financial aid is awarded to deserving families that may need assistance in paying for tuition. Palmer Trinity has chosen TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) to conduct the financial need assessments for families interested in applying. Based on the information provided, TADS will calculate an estimated amount that your family can contribute to educational expenses. The amount of this award is not applied to books, uniforms, transportation, or the tablet. While the school attempts to be equitable, the Financial Aid Committee must consider choices made by families in the acquisition of homes, boats, and cars, as well as “extras,” such as clubs and vacations. A Palmer Trinity education is a choice that a family makes. They understand that it is a financial commitment, and each family is expected to make a sacrifice. Palmer Trinity does not guarantee to meet 100% of need.
