At Tesseract, we recognize that the cost of tuition is beyond the reach of some families. Tesseract School strives to ensure that no qualified student who wishes to attend Tesseract, or who is already enrolled at Tesseract, is denied admission or required to leave due to verifiable financial need.
Based on demonstrated need, Tesseract awards financial assistance to families to help offset tuition costs, enabling us to assist qualified, accepted applicants. These awards are drawn from the school’s funds and are not repaid.
If you feel you may qualify for financial assistance, you are encouraged to apply early, as available funds are limited. Please remember that applying for financial aid does not guarantee eligibility.
Tesseract has partnered with School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS in our financial aid process. To begin your financial aid application, you will complete SSS’s Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The PFS is the cornerstone of our financial aid application process. By submitting a PFS, you are granting SSS by NAIS permission to analyze your financial information. Using their unique methodology, they estimate the amount you can contribute to school expenses and forward that estimate to Tesseract. It is one form, for one fee, for any number of siblings.
