Mission

We are uniquely strengthened by our connection to the non-profit mission of NAIS because it means we have your best interests at heart. Our resources are committed to schools and families, not shareholders, and that’s manifested in industry-leading benchmarking and research that no one else offers.

 


Methodology

We built our methodology on the principle that families of equal means should receive equal awards and that’s why it’s considered the industry standard. Far more than a snapshot of a family’s finances, we’ll give you an objective and reliable baseline for your financial aid decisions. Simply put, you’ll have everything you need to assess a family’s ability to pay tuition. 

 

2,100+ Schools and Organizations

We are the most well-established provider of financial aid services to private and independent schools.

160,000 Families Served Annually

We make it easier for your families with one form, for one fee, for any number of siblings, for any number of schools.


Community

A spirit of connectedness exists between SSS by NAIS schools because we strive to help them share best practices. You'll find your school is more than just a customer - you'll become an integral part of a community dedicated to advancing the profession of financial aid.


Commitment

We are committed to increasing access to private schools. It’s why we've introduced a groundbreaking fee waiver program and serve more than 80 non-profit access organizations devoted to increasing educational opportunities for underrepresented, often low-income, students. It's an effort to help schools find motivated and talented students they may not identify.
