Serving Preschool Through 8th Grade in the San Francisco East Bay Since 1962

Affordable Education

We are excited about the educational programs and engaging opportunities we offer at The Seven Hills School, and at the same time, are aware that an independent school education is a major investment. 

To enrich our community by welcoming a diverse socio-economic population, a needs-based financial aid program is available to bridge the difference between the cost of a Seven Hills education and a family’s resources.  The Tuition Assistance Committee (a small group of school administrators) reviews each application and considers extenuating circumstances. The goal of the Tuition Assistance Committee is to award funds to families who demonstrate financial need and the committee's deliberations are confidential.
 
We use School and Student Services (SSS by NAIS) to process tuition assistance applications. SSS is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. Based on the financial information parents provide, SSS gives us an estimated amount a family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps us make fair and objective tuition assistance decisions. This determination is based on analysis of the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and required supplemental information. 

Importantly, tuition assistance decisions are independent of admissions decisions, and both are made without regard to race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, nationality or ethnic origin.

"As we consider student applications within the admissions process, we are looking for families with whom our mission resonates. And we are committed to making a Seven Hills education accessible to as many of those families as possible." - Susanne Goldman, Director of Admissions and Tuition Assistance
