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 students are given preference, providing they meet all deadline dates. A family receiving financial aid must reapply each year and meet all the guidelines set forth by the Financial Aid Committee.
Student must be accepted before the financial aid request will be processed. Families may begin applying for financial aid online through Smart Aid beginning on February 6, 2017.

Q. When will we be notified if we have received an award?
A. Families are notified once the completed financial aid documents are submitted and a decision is determined by the Financial Aid Committee.
Q. Will applying for Financial Aid affect my child’s chances for admission?
A. No. Students are admitted to NBPS based on their academic ability, not their financial status. Admission decisions are made separately from financial aid decisions. Students must be accepted to NBPS prior to applying or being granted financial aid.
Q. Will my child’s Financial Aid award change from year to year?
A. 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.
