How is eligibility for aid determined?
Prospective students must complete the admissions process and be accepted prior to being considered for financial aid.
Like many independent schools, Admiral Farragut uses the services of School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third party administrator, to assist in determining a family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. Our Financial Aid Committee uses this assessment along with a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and any additional information regarding special circumstances to make financial aid award decisions, taking into consideration our financial aid budget for any given year. As a result, Farragut's calculated parent contribution may differ from the SSS calculation.
For example, Farragut will consider the potential for income to be earned by an able, non-working parent who does not have children under the age of four at home.

If we do not apply/qualify for aid this year, can we apply again next year?
