Financial Aid

Malvern Prep remains committed to making a Malvern education accessible to any young man who wishes to receive a Malvern education.

Current Malvern families who receive financial assistance are of various cultural, economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds who have demonstrated the financial need and want to attend our school.

Financial Aid Information

When applying for Financial Aid, there are a number of items that are required to complete an application.

To begin your Financial Aid application for the coming school year, please follow the steps below:

Financial Aid FAQs

List of 6 items.

  • How does Malvern Prep define need?

    We define need as the difference between the family's expected contribution and the child's tuition expense. The School and Student Services (SSS) online application will compute a family contribution that will help us determine a family's need.
  • I checked "Yes" for Financial Aid consideration on my admissions application. Now what?

    If you checked "yes" for Financial Aid consideration on our admissions application, please submit all relevant Financial Aid forms to our Admissions Office or upload them to School and Student Services (SSS) as soon as possible.

    We strongly encourage you to not wait until you have received an admissions decision to begin the Financial Aid application process. It is best to file the Parent's Financial Aid Statement (PFS) form online and submit all required documentation by December 15.
  • What happens if I am accepted but do not receive aid?

    The school reviews candidates for Financial Aid on a rolling basis. Accepted students requiring Financial Aid who do not receive an award package initially will be placed in a Financial Aid wait pool. Depending on the strength of other candidates, reconsideration for a grant may be given at a later time.
  • What information do you need if parents are divorced, separated, or remarried?

    School policy requires that divorced, separated, or remarried parents must submit the information of both natural parents and both step-parents when applicable. In addition, guardians or students or students residing with relatives or grandparents must submit the financial data for the appropriate parties. Trusts, court decrees, and/or divorce settlements must also be submitted to our Admissions Office. All documentation will be kept confidential.
  • What is a K-12 Family Education Loan?

    Unfortunately, Financial Aid funds are limited and we are unable to meet the needs of all qualified applicants. The Sallie Mae K-12 Family Education Loan Program helps families continue to look for financially responsible ways to pay for private K-12 education. The K-12 Family Education Loan is an ideal solution for families who need flexibility beyond financial aid, personal savings, or monthly payment plans when paying for private school education. Learn more about the K-12 Family Education Loan.
  • When will decisions be made?

    Malvern does not provide a Financial Aid determination until an applicant has completed our admissions process and an admissions decision has been reached.

    When an applicant is accepted, a completed Financial Aid package must be submitted before it will be reviewed. Once all admissions decisions are made and all Financial Aid forms have been received by the Admissions Office, we will begin the evaluate those accepted students requiring aid and make award determinations beginning in January.

    Students who qualify for Financial Aid will be evaluated based on their application and how the student relates to the make-up of the incoming class. Freshman candidates will be notified of Financial Aid award determinations in January.
