For decades SSS has been your strategic partner in financial aid management. Now, we've upgraded our cornerstone technology to be even more efficient, intuitive, and valuable to your school.

Parents' Financial Statement

The Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) is the cornerstone of our financial aid application process. Families submit a PFS and grant us permission to analyze their financial information. Using our unique methodology, we estimate the amount they can contribute to school expenses and forward that estimate to the appropriate schools. It’s one form, for one fee, for any number of siblings, for any number of schools. 


Professional Development

We provide the support, knowledge, and leadership schools and families need to make informed decisions regarding financial aid. New and experienced practitioners alike find high-quality training resources in the form of educational events, online tutorials, and a wide range of information resources.


We are committed to providing exceptional, real-time support. Our Customer Service Center offers assistance in English as well as Spanish — to both schools and families. And our deep pool of financial aid experts, both in-house and within our extended school community, provide an unparalleled level of expertise to help you manage your most challenging cases.


SSS has significantly helped improve and streamline our financial aid process. In addition, the support provided is by far one of the most useful resources available. We are a small school and it is extremely helpful to be able to call and receive instant support.
