Affording Bentley

Bentley School is committed to creating a school community that is diverse. To ensure a student body that demographically represents the Bay Area in all ways, Bentley School offers financial aid to students whose families apply for and demonstrate a need for assistance. 

This program provides financial assistance to qualified families, and we endeavor to provide financial support to the widest socioeconomic range of students possible. All families pay some tuition and 29% of the student body receives financial aid. 

Bentley School requires a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and supporting documents for parents and guardians. This information must be submitted each year to demonstrate financial need. The School utilizes the School and Student Service (SSS) for financial aid analysis as a guideline when making awards. In the case of divorced or separated parents, the School requires both parents to submit the PFS form.

Bentley School's SSS code is 902023.

Bentley has a generous budget for financial assistance and is still able to accept financial aid applications. Please note that all applications for financial assistance will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

1. Submit the Parent Financial Statement (PFS)
  • To begin the application process, click HERE.
Note: The PFS for the 2021-2022 school year will be available to complete beginning in October.

2. Submit supporting documents to SSS 
No documents are to be submitted to Bentley School.
  • Include current W2 forms, complete and signed tax returns for two prior years.
You only need to complete one application, even if you have several children applying to Bentley School. You will get a user name and password so you may save your information and return to it at a later date or time. If you need help completing the PFS, contact SSS customer service at (800) 344-8328.
