Affording a JMSG Education

Julia Morgan School for Girls is committed to fostering an inclusive school community that is accessible to everyone. To fulfill this commitment, the school provides a Flexible Tuition Program for students whose families apply for this option. This program is open to all families participating in the admission process. Families interested in flexible tuition submit information about their financial resources, and the school utilizes standard criteria and follows NAIS best practices to determine appropriate flexible tuition amounts.

In order to assess a family's eligibility for flexible tuition in a fair and equitable manner, JMSG requires all applicants to complete the Parents Financial Statement (PFS) provided by a third party, School and Student Services (SSS), for each year of matriculation. Despite our dedication to supporting those in need, the demand for flexible tuition exceeds our available resources. JMSG's Flexible Tuition Program currently assists approximately 32% of our students. Acknowledging that a JMSG education represents a significant investment in a child's future, the flexible tuition committee diligently reviews, evaluates, and determines a fair assessment of a family's ability to afford a JMSG education for their child.

  • Computation of Family Contribution

    SSS is a third-party need analysis service that relies on economic factors to determining the eligibility of families. Once a family has applied for Flexible Tuition, SSS generates a Report of Family Contribution (RFC). JMSG then applies a Bay Area Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) to determine a family's ability to pay. Families with preschool-aged children or extraordinary situation should make the committee aware of their circumstances in the additional notes section of the PFS. If more than one child in a family attends a tuition-charging institution, JMSG strongly recommends families apply for aid at each of the institutions their children attend. 
  • Other Considerations

    All parents who own a business will be required to upload all current business tax returns. Business owners will also be asked to furnish income statements, balance sheets, and any other information relevant to the business. 

    Student Assets/ Trusts/ College Funds/Inheritance
    Savings, investments, trust funds, 529 funds, or other assets in a student’s name or held for a student for any reason, or restricted in any way, are considered available resources for use in funding a student’s education at JMSG.
