Financial Aid

A Mid-Pacific education is within reach. In 2022-2023, Mid-Pacific awarded $5M in financial aid assistance to Mid-Pacific families. 26% of the entire student body receives need-based financial aid with each family receiving $11,400 on average.

Mid-Pacific uses the independent services of "School and Student Services By Community Brands" (SSS) to help assess and process financial aid applications. SSS provides Mid-Pacific with a preliminary estimate that each family is able to contribute toward tuition. Mid-Pacific awards a percentage of the SSS-calculated family need taking into consideration many factors, including but not limited to: family income and size, assets, family debt, number of children attending tuition-paying schools, and other factors.

For more information, please see the Mid-Pacific Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions page or email [email protected].


The tuition for the 2022-2023 school year is as follows:

Preschool & Kindergarten-Grade 12 Tuition: $28,611

English Language Development (ELD): $2,740 (each course)
(ELD: International Students not meeting English Language requirements)

International Student Service Fee: $2,000 (annual fee)
The international student service fee supports our efforts to enhance the international student and family experience at Mid-Pacific Institute. The fee applies to those students who fit into our definition of an international student.

Tuition supports Mid-Pacific's outstanding faculty, programs such as the Mid-Pacific School of the Arts, and an innovative technology platform for all students. While tuition does not cover the annual costs of operating our school, we remain committed to keeping tuition accessible to our families.

How to Apply for Financial Aid 2022-2023

Step 1: Complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS)

In order to help determine eligibility, Mid-Pacific uses School and Student Services (SSS) by Community Brands. Admission applicant families for the 2023 - 2024 school year must submit the completed Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and the $60 non-refundable fee by February 15, 2023.

Access the SSS website by clicking here, and read the information presented. When you are ready to complete the form, click on the green Complete Your PFS link.

Only one PFS is required for multiple children and for those applying to other independent schools; however, document requirements differ at all schools. Remember your password; you will need it to "save" your work-in-progress and to return to the PFS at a later time.

About 24 hours after you have paid for and submitted your PFS online, you will have access to the Manage Documents section of the PFS Online. You can now upload documents (see next section) and view your Family Report that summarizes the information that will be provided to Mid-Pacific.

Please call Mid-Pacific Institute's Financial Aid Office at (808) 973-5003 or email [email protected].

Both New Admissions Applicant and Current Mid-Pacific Student
If a family is applying a new student for the 2023 - 2024 school year and has a currently enrolled Mid-Pacific student, please follow the deadlines and requirements for "New Admission Applicants for the 23-24 school year."

Divorced Or Separated Parents
Mid-Pacific's financial aid policy considers that both biological parents have an obligation to contribute to the extent they can to their children's educational expenses. Assets and income of both biological parents are taken into account. Mid-Pacific cannot be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed legally or otherwise any responsibility for educational expenses. If either parent has remarried, income of the step-parent will be considered, keeping in mind the obligation of that step-parent to his or her natural children. If either parent lives in a household with another adult, Mid-Pacific may consider the assets and income of that person, depending on circumstances. In view of this, both biological parents and their current spouses need to fill out a separate PFS form.

Non-discrimination Policy
Mid-Pacific Institute, in the administration of its programs, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or gender, in administering its educational or admissions policies, financial aid, athletic or other programs.

The process of admissions and financial aid are unrelated, and the need for financial aid will not affect admission to Mid-Pacific Institute.

Financial assistance will be considered based on demonstrated financial need, leave, availability of funds, and information provided on the PFS. With current families, Mid-Pacific also considers tuition payment history.
