  • Tuition Assistance: The Flexible Tuition Program

    Jackson Prep believes that qualified students who desire a Prep education should not be denied that opportunity because of economic hardship. Therefore, Prep has established the Flex Tuition Program to help families in need. Flex Tuition is awarded strictly on the basis of need. Jackson Prep does not award any athletic or academic merit scholarships.

    The Flex Tuition program requires that each family complete an online application to the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Princeton, NJ. This national independent school service provides a financial evaluation of the family’s resources. Based upon available funds, Prep attempts to meet the demonstrated need as reported by School and Student Service for Financial Aid.

    Decisions on admission and tuition assistance are separate. Regardless of financial need, parents should proceed with the admission process as soon as possible. School and Student Service for Financial Aid Forms are available to current recipients beginning in November and to new students upon acceptance. Applications for tuition assistance should be begun by February 1 and completed by March 1 of each year of enrollment.

    For further tuition assistance information and to begin the analysis process, visit the School Scholarship Services website. For questions regarding the process of tuition assistance, email or contact Samantha Bowling at (601) 939-8611 ext. 251.

  • Additional Expenses

    Additional expenses vary by student schedules and personal preferences.  These include school supplies, lab fees, uniforms and meals at school.  Participation in some optional school activities requires specialized clothing, equipment, and some travel expenses.
Jackson Prep is pleased to announce a strategic tuition plan to meet the needs of current families and incoming families during formidable times.

The Jackson Prep Board of Trustees is tasked annually with evaluating tuition. There are exciting changes to the 2021-2022 school year tuition structure. The Board of Trustees has established that grades 8 through 12 will not have a tuition increase for the 2021-2022 school year. 

Board President John Davis stated, “The challenges of 2020 have impacted us all, and we are hopeful that keeping our tuition at its current level will benefit all our families.”

For grades 6 and 7—Jackson Prep’s main entry grades—Prep is lowering tuition significantly for the 2021-2022 school year. The adjustment in tuition for our entry level grades will assist in affordability challenges and is supported by our endowment growth initiatives. 

Families looking for quality education often look at the independent school setting.  Independent schools offer definite benefits:  smaller classes, excellent teaching, close student-teacher relationships, and a sense of family involvement.  Such a quality education requires commitment from the school, the students, and the parents.  The comparative value of a Prep education is widely acknowledged to be unsurpassed.

The Board of Trustees sets the tuition for each school year.   

The Foundation Membership Fee and the Enrollment Fee must accompany the Enrollment Contract, due February 1.  Tuition is due beginning each year on June 10.
