North Broward Preparatory School understands that individual economic circumstances vary. We value you and your child as part of our school community, and we are committed to providing need-based financial aid.
Within the limits of available funds, NBPS seeks to provide tuition assistance to qualified students, who must have and maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher. The Financial Aid Committee reviews the student’s grades, character, and disciplinary records.
The school’s policy for determining financial need is based on the principle that both parents are responsible for the support and educational expenses of their children. We consider the assets of both parents, if living, before making the award. Both parents are expected to be gainfully employed unless there are children under the age of four years living at home. If the custodial parent has remarried, we will consider the assets of the step-parent, taking into consideration the obligations to his or her natural children.
Returning families are given preference, providing you apply by December 15. Notifications of financial aid awards will be sent with your enrollment contract no later than February 1. A family receiving financial aid must reapply each year and meet all the guidelines set forth by the Financial Aid Committee.
New families must apply for financial aid by February 1 if applying for Priority Admission. For families who submitted a completed financial aid application along with all supplemental documents will be notified of their financial aid award by March 15.
New families must apply for financial aid by April 1 if applying for Regular Admission. For families who submitted a completed financial aid application along with all supplemental documents will be notified of their financial aid award by May 15.

Q. When will we be notified if we have received an award?
Current families who submit a completed financial aid application along with supplemental documents by December 15 will be notified of their financial award at the time our re-enrollment contracts are sent (no later than February 1). Families who submit a financial aid application after December 15 will be notified as funds are available.
New families who submit a completed financial aid application along with supplemental documents by February 1 for Priority Admission will be notified by March 15. Families who submit a completed financial aid application along with supplemental documents by April 1 for Regular Admission will be notified by May 15. Families who submit a financial aid application after our two deadlines will be notified as funds are available.
Q. Will applying for Financial Aid affect my child’s chances for admission?
No. Students are admitted to NBPS based on their academic ability, not their financial status. Admission decisions are made separately from financial aid decisions.
Q. Will my child’s Financial Aid award change from year to year?
Families must apply for financial aid each year. Financial aid is recalculated each year using current financial information. If your financial situation has changed, then your financial award may change.
