Our financial aid program's key purpose is to help families to bridge the economic gap between what they can afford and the cost of tuition. LREI does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other legally protected class in the administration of its financial aid program.
We strongly encourage all interested families to apply. Families from a wide range of income levels have qualified for financial aid, and aid is available to students at all grade levels. Awards are granted to students on the basis of need and availability of funds. Notification of awards is provided at the time of acceptance. Awards are granted for one year at a time, and must be applied for annually. An applicant's need for financial aid does not affect admission eligibility.
Families interested in applying for financial aid should check the appropriate box on the admissions application. Families must complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) form on the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS)
website and submit federal tax returns with all schedules for two recent tax years. Both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete the PFS forms and submit tax information. If only one parent is legally and/or financially responsible for the applicant, supporting documentation must be provided. Additional documentation is also required for business owners and self-employed individuals. All financial information is kept confidential and is only shared with the financial aid committee.
The deadline for submission of all materials to LREI is December 15, 2017
. Due to the high volume of requests, it is critical that families submit all requested materials in a timely manner. Award letters are mailed with acceptance letters according to the Independent School Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY)
