How to Apply

Applying to a new school may seem daunting, but we’re available to help every step of the way. Here’s everything you need to know about how to apply:


Any family interested in being considered for need-based financial aid must complete the Parent Financial Statement through School and Student Services. Include Mercersburg Academy’s code (5026) and a copy will be made accessible to the school.

All new applicants for financial aid must submit to SSS their current year's and their previous two years' federal income tax returns, including W2s and 1040s with all schedules and attachments. For families with multiple children in tuition-charging schools, a copy of the financial aid award received at each child's institution should be uploaded to SSS as soon as it is available to the family. The family should then notify Mercersburg's Office of Admission that they have done so.

The deadline for all financial aid applications for prospective families is January 31. Current-year tax documents that are not available by that date should be completed and uploaded to SSS as soon as they are available.
