STUDENT AID INFORMATION
Waldron Mercy Academy strives to be financially available to all families interested in providing a quality Mercy education for their children. Our financial aid program provides monetary assistance for families who demonstrate financial need. Need is defined as the difference between educational expenses and the family’s ability to pay those expenses.
There is no specific income level at which a family is no longer eligible for aid. Eligibility is based on many factors, so you may want to consider applying for financial aid if you feel you cannot pay all of the costs yourself. Waldron Mercy recognizes that families bear the primary responsibility for financing their child’s education and expects a family to exhaust all available resources before requesting aid from the school.
WMA uses School and Student Services (“SSS”), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (“NAIS”), to process financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you provide in your application, SSS calculates an estimate of the amount your family can contribute toward educational expenses. This enables us to make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
Whom should I contact if I have further questions or concerns?
For more information, please feel free to contact Mark Murray, director of finance and operations, or call him at 610-664-9847, ext. 115.
Complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (“PFS”) online through SSS any time between November 1 and March 31 for the following school year.
Submit a copy of your most recent federal tax return to SSS by April 15, including all W2s and supporting schedules (These documents are for the tax year prior to the school year for which you are applying).
