Tuition & Assistance

TUITION ASSISTANCE

To promote access for qualified students who may not be able to consider Pacific Ridge for financial reasons, the school provides tuition assistance. We have a generous assistance budget and allocate more than 3.5 million dollars annually. As a result, a Pacific Ridge education is possible for families of varying financial resources, and our financial aid recipients represent a wide range of income levels. 

HOW TUITION ASSISTANCE WORKS

Families requesting tuition assistance apply at the same time as they apply for admission to Pacific Ridge School, with both applications due by February 1. The link to the FAST application will be available on this site after November 1st. Please see below for FAST application details.

The Admissions Committee makes admissions decisions first, without knowledge of tuition assistance requests. The Business Office then allocates the tuition assistance grants to the accepted students based on demonstrated need and the dollars available in the school’s assistance budget.

In this video, former Director of Enrollment Jenny Bjornstad and Tuition Assistance Manager Jenn De la Cruz provide helpful insights into the Tuition Assistance process.

TUITION MANAGEMENT OPTIONS

Pacific Ridge offers families several payment options to help manage tuition expenses. After paying a 10% non-refundable deposit at the time of enrolling, families can choose one of several payment options. Balances can be paid in full, in two payments, or in ten payments. Tuition insurance is also available.
