Pingree Scholars Program
Each year Pingree awards a scholarship to two ninth graders through our Pingree Scholars Program. This Program offers eighth grade students the opportunity to receive substantially reduced tuition throughout their four years at Pingree School. Pingree Scholars will receive a 75% tuition reduction in their 9th grade year and 33% reduction in their 10th, 11th and 12th grade tuitions. Finalists will be chosen from those candidates earning the highest scores on the test. In addition to performance on the exam, the Admission Committee considers the candidate's academic standing, effort demonstrated in current school, citizenship and participation in extra-curricular activities. Pingree Scholars winners and standard applicant pool candidates will be notified of the Admission Committee decisions after our March 10 mailing date.
All ninth grade candidates interested in the Pingree Scholars Program must visit campus on December 7, January 4, or January 11 to take the ISEE or SSAT exam. To register, go to www.iseetest.org or www.ssat.org. Registration forms are also available from our Office of Admission and may be requested by calling 978-468-4415 ext. 262. Students must register for the test no later than three weeks prior to the test date. Test dates at Pingree for 2013–2014 are December 7, 2013; January 4, 2014; and January 11, 2014.
What about Financial Aid?
Pingree Scholars can apply for Financial Aid above and beyond their scholarship amount. Pingree encourages all candidates to apply for financial aid. Pingree will review the financial aid need of those who do not receive Pingree Scholars Award. Families interested in receiving aid should contact the Admission Office and request a Parent's Financial Statement (PFS). Completed forms should be submitted to the School and to Student Services for Financial Aid in Princeton, New Jersey. The Financial Aid Committee will review these forms.
