Financial Aid


As part of our practice of the Quaker testimonies of equity and community, SFCS is committed to making a Friends education available to as many students and families as possible and cultivating a socioeconomically diverse learning community. Our fundraising program and budgeting process prioritize allocating funds towards need-based financial aid for K-8 students. 

Approximately 35% of SFCS families receive aid. While we aim to offer financial assistance to as many families as possible, the demand for financial aid typically exceeds available funding. Requests for financial aid are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, with families returning to SCFS given priority. Additional assistance may be available for Quaker families through our partner, Friends Council on Education. 

SFCS uses the FACTS Grant and Aid financial aid application program to process financial aid requests using secure, encrypted data. Application data submitted to SCFS via the FACTS Grant and Aid portal is reviewed by our Financial Aid Committee, which makes all final award determinations. The process is confidential throughout.


Pre-K Financial Assistance Programs

Pre-K families may be eligible for two different subsidy programs. 

  • The Penn State Child Care Subsidy is available to student parents to off-set the cost of child care while they pursue their own education in a degree seeking program. 
  • The Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) manages the Child Care Works program to off-set the cost of childcare for qualifying families that are residents of Pennsylvania.
