Modified Tuition Application Instructions

Consistent with other independent schools across the country, to apply for Modified Tuition, we require families to register with School & Student Services (SSS) and follow the procedures outlined on the SSS website, including submitting the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and other required forms. We adhere to the NAIS Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid.

The general timeline is as follows:
  • December 15, 2023: Deadline to submit SSS application and tax documentation for re-enrolling families.
  • January 15, 2024: Deadline to submit SSS application and tax documentation for new families applying to Seven Hills.
  • March 14, 2024: Notification of Modified Tuition emailed with acceptance letters. Although decisions are made within the same timeline, the two applications and processes are separate.


  1. Please note that the school code for Seven Hills is 7276. 
  2. Submit a Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) online. Only one PFS and a $60 submission fee to SSS are required per family.
