Complete a Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) through School and Student Service (SSS)
, a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Marin Horizon School uses SSS to assess a family's ability to pay for their child's education. All parents and step-parents are required to complete this form.
New families, and returning families who are new to the financial aid process, should upload their 2013 tax returns and either W-2s or 1099s to SSS. Please include all schedules filed. 2014 tax returns and supporting documentation (W-2s or 1099s) should uploaded as soon as they are received. Awards are contingent until your file is complete with this information.
Sign and upload to SSS IRS form 4506-T
. Marin Horizon reserves the right to request copies of the tax returns you filed with the IRS to verify accuracy of the copies that you submit to SSS, and this form allows us to do so. We do not require you, however, to submit a check for the fee payable to the IRS.
Due by February 1, 2015:
All families should upload their 2014 tax returns and either w-2's or 1099's to SSS. Please include all schedules filed. For those families who file their taxes late in the year, the Tuition Assistance Committee will make awards contingent upon receipt of these documents. They should be uploaded to SSS as soon as they are available.
March 3, 2015: The Tuition Assistance Committee notifies returning families of their tuition assistance awards by March 3.
March 4, 2015: The Tuition Assistance Committee sends out tuition assistance awards with letters of acceptance to newly admitted preschool students.
March 10, 2015: Enrollment contracts for returning families who have applied for tuition assistance are due.
March 11, 2015: The Tuition Assistance Committee sends out tuition assistance awards with letters of acceptance to newly admitted students in Kindergarten through 7th grades. Enrollment contracts for newly admitted preschool students are due.
March 18, 2015: Enrollment contracts for new families who have applied for tuition assistance are due.
Late Applications: Requests for tuition assistance that are filed after the deadlines will be made if funds are available and are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the fact that we may have requests for more assistance than we have funds available, we are not always able to meet full need as determined by SSS, but we make every effort to accommodate all families who are requesting assistance.
Renewal: We grant Tuition Assistance awards for one year. We ask that parents complete a PFS each year and send it to SSS in accordance with the annual application deadlines. Unless there is a significant change in annual income or available assets, you can expect the approximate level of assistance to be continued from year to year.
