Tuition Assistance at MPH

As Central New York’s independent school, we believe families from all backgrounds should have access to the transformative educational experience that MPH provides.  Greater diversity in our student body enriches our classroom experiences and strengthens our community.

With this priority in mind, we award over $1.5 million in grants and scholarships to more than 45 percent of our families each year. Our process of determining the financial needs of each family reflects the personal and respectful approach MPH applies to every aspect of its admissions.

How Our Process Works

To be considered for tuition assistance, families must annually complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) on the School and Student Services (SSS) website. The Financial Aid Committee at MPH uses the information from SSS as a starting point to determine eligibility for tuition assistance.  Families are officially notified of tuition assistance eligibility within Re-enrollment materials (for returning families) or Acceptance materials (for new families).

Note for Prospective Families:

We welcome families to contact the Admissions Office  to have an initial conversation about tuition assistance. Our pre-qualification process is designed to help families gain a general understanding of what funding may be available. We know that this may be a crucial first step (even before applying or visiting).

To Complete the PFS and share with MPH (note: our school code is 4804)

  • Visit the School and Student Services site and create a login, or log in to your existing PFS Online account using your email address and password.
  • Complete and submit your PFS using income and tax information based on your 2022 tax return. You can log out of the PFS Online any time and return later to complete it (note that submission of the PFS carries a $60 fee, charged by SSS).
  • Upload a copy of your 2022 tax return and W-2 forms for verification purposes. Click on the “Manage Documents” tab, then “Upload Documents,” then “Browse” to locate the documents on your computer. Note that it can sometimes take up to 24 hours after you’ve submitted the PFS for the “Manage Documents” tab to appear.

If you need help, we encourage you to contact SSS Customer Service by calling (800) 344-8328, or by emailing
