Go to and create an account. The process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time.

There is a $35 nonrefundable application fee, payable by debit/credit card.

We are very proud to continue our financial aid program to families of our students who demonstrate need. An application must be made every year for which you seek financial aid; the application can only be made directly from your FACTS tuition account by clicking on the “Apply for Grant & Aid” on your landing page. An application takes an average of two (2) hours total to complete properly.
For 2021-22, the application deadline for rising upperclasswomen is April 30, 2021 and there is a $35 fee, payable directly to FACTS. An application is not complete and will not be considered without the required 2020 tax documents (Federal and State returns and W-2 wage statements). If your tuition is in arrears as of May 1, your application will not be considered.
For incoming freshmen (class of 2025), the deadline is December 31, 2020.
There is no way to determine in advance if you will receive financial aid, as there are simply too many individual factors and extenuating circumstances taken into consideration. Final awards are always contingent upon the funds available and the number of families requesting aid. Any Financial Aid granted will be posted to your FACTS tuition account at the end of May 2021.
Financial Aid cannot be combined with any other Preston-awarded tuition discounts, except the Sibling and early payment discounts. It can, however, be combined with tuition assistance from external sources such as, but not limited to, Inner City, Columbus Citizens, Excellence Community Schools, various school, and memorial scholarships and private assistance.
