Applying for Financial Aid

Riverbend School offers need-based financial aid grants for all students enrolled in Kindergarten through 8th grade.  We use FACTS Grant & Aid to process our financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you supply, FACTS provides an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses, which helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions. To begin your financial aid application, please follow the steps below.

  1.  Begin your application for financial assistance by going to https://online.factsmgt.com/aid after November 1. All Financial Aid applications must be submitted online.
  2. Click on the prompt to begin your application. You will need to search for Riverbend School by typing in the zip code 01760. Only one application is required per family even if you have more than one child applying to our school.
  3. You will be given a username and password allowing you to complete your application at a later date before submitting it. This is an encrypted site to ensure the security of the data you enter.
  4. Riverbend School code is 3941.
  5. If applicable, an application must also be completed by non-custodial parents along with supporting documentation.

The following tax forms are required and should be uploaded directly to FACTS:

  • 2021 IRS 1040 tax return and all supporting schedules
  • 2021 W-2s and/or 1099-MISC forms (to document wages)

The following tax form is not required with the application, but may be requested at a later date:

  • 2022 W-2’s and/or 1099-MISC forms when available

To complete the application, use actual dollar figures from your 2021 IRS 1040.

Note: To be considered for financial aid for the 2023-24 school year, your completed application must be submitted by the deadline (see below). Financial aid applications can only be processed once our Admissions office has received the admissions application.
