Columbia-affiliated families, other than those in Columbia bargaining units, must be eligible for the Primary Tuition Scholarship (PTS) in order to be eligible to attend The School. PTS eligibility, including residency in the five boroughs of New York City, is re-confirmed each year by Columbia University Human Resources. Columbia-affiliated families are required to submit an executed PTS Form each year at the same time as they submit their signed contract and deposit to The School.
Please note, Columbia-affiliated families are not eligible to apply for financial aid in addition to the PTS.
