Financial Assistance
Our Philosophy

At Park Street School, we endeavor to make the opportunity available for an excellent Christian education to all qualified students regardless of financial circumstance or income. Financial Assistance is available for Pre-K through Grade 6, with limited availability for Preschool. Our commitment is, whenever possible, to meet each family’s need as determined by the National Association of Independent Schools’ (NAIS) School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). Once we commit financial assistance to a family, parents can expect that commitment to continue at Park Street School based on continued need and available funds.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my child(ren)'s chances of getting an acceptance at your school?
Although we receive more applications than there are spots in our school, for the most part families who see Park Street School as their top choice best fit school are able to gain admittance if not in the first round of Admissions, then off of the waiting list.
How do you choose the children you accept?
Meeting children and their families and getting to know them is our favorite part of the admissions process. There are so many wonderful children who walk through our doors and it is an honor to spend time with them and learn about their unique personalities. We are looking for families who love what Park Street School has to offer and who are excited to be a part of our community, and for children who are eager to learn and make friends. We also work hard to put together well-balanced classrooms that represent a nice diversity of gender and ethnicity, as well as temperaments and learning styles.
Where have your graduates been accepted for middle school?
We are so proud of our graduates! They've been thriving in their next schools — with 100 percent having placed in top independent and exam schools in the Boston area since our first graduating class. From 2014-2017, more than 95 percent of our graduates who applied to Boston Exam Schools earned spots, with 80 percent receiving invitations to Boston Latin School. In addition to exam schools, our graduates are enrolled in over 20 different competitive independent schools throughout the Boston area including Belmont Hill, Boston College High, BB&N, Newton Country Day, Nobles, Roxbury Latin, and Winsor. Learn more (link to PSS Graduates page).
Does Park Street School offer sibling preference in admissions?
Yes! Our sibling preference policy is very strong. We love our families and want to serve the entire family unit.
How long is the wait list and is there an order to it?
We try to keep a reasonably-sized waiting list that has no rank or order to it. As families express interest in taking an open spot, we do our best to match the wait-listed child to make a well balanced class. By this, we mean one that represents a nice diversity of gender and ethnicity, as well as temperaments and learning styles.
Does Park Street School offer Financial Aid?
Yes. Park Street School offers need-based financial assistance to families who qualify. We partner with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and use their School & Student Services (SSS by NAIS), through which you can submit an application for financial aid. It is based on your tax return information. SSS by NAIS estimates the amount you can contribute to school expenses and forwards this estimate to Park Street School. The information you submit is completely confidential and only seen by our financial aid committee.
Is there a parent and/or child interview in the Admissions process?
We enjoy getting to know the parents of applicants during one-on-one tours of our campuses. For our youngest applicants, we organize small playgroups as an informal way to meet them. Grade 1-6 and Kindergarten applicants come in for an informal evaluation with an admission staff person. Older applicants may also choose to spend a day with a class.
Is my child old enough to enroll?
Our main entry points are Toddler (children must be 2-years-old by September 1 of enrollment year) and Kindergarten (children must be 5-years-old by September 1 of enrollment year).
