Financial Aid

As a non-profit educational institution which is committed to serving the community, SFIS does its best to offer financial assistance to families in need.  The financial aid need assessment is performed by a 3rd party company (Smart Aid).  The assessments completed by Smart Aid will be provided to SFIS’s financial aid personnel for review.  Financial aid will be then be awarded by SFIS based on the need assessment results.

Note: Financial aid is awarded based on need and submitting an application does not guarantee financial assistance by SFIS. Financial aid form should only be filled out by families who have already received an acceptance letter from SFIS.
