Once we have received and reviewed the required application, teacher recommendation form, and copy of the school records from the current (or most recent) school administrator, we will contact your family to schedule a school day visit for your child.

Families intending to apply for financial aid from Chewonki should fill out a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) at sssbynais.org/parents. The fee is approximately $52 for application and you will receive a confirmation email directly after your submission.
