Potomac Falls High School Band Program Financial Aid Guidelines

To get a copy of the Band Program Financial Aid Form and Financial Aid Guidelines, click HERE

Financial Aid is available to PFHS band program students on an as-needed basis and funded through the PFHS Band Boosters. The boosters will annually set a budget for financial aid at the beginning of each school year with additional funds to be allocated, as needed, on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is that this financial aid be available to those who cannot afford these costs but desire to participate in the band program.

If you are facing a temporary financial hardship and are able to make deferred payments, please contact Mr. Niebergall (Band Director) directly.

To request financial aid, please complete the attached form (see above), and submit it to Mr. Niebergall (Band Director) or the Assistant Principal in the front office. Requests will be considered on a case by case basis. All requests will be kept strictly confidential and will be decided by the school administration. While the Band Boosters help fund the financial aid, no PFHS parent is part of this process.

Financial aid will be allocated, to the extent funds are available, based on the following criteria:

  1. Financial need
  2. The student must be in good standing in the band program, show academic effort in other classes and exhibit good citizenship.
  3. Effort made by student and family to participate in fund raisers sponsored by the Band Boosters or work study offered by the Band Program

Financial aid also will be prioritized as follows:

  1. Instrument rental fee for instruments offered through the Loudoun County Public School District. This fee may be waived by the Band Director but should be noted on the attached form
  2. Garment/Uniform fees, including dry-cleaning and Marching Band shoes. Approximate cost is $65.00. Up to 100% of the fee will be covered.
  3. Fees associated with extra-curricular Band activities such as Marching Band or Winter Guard or Ensembles. Grants will be offered (Up to 50% of fees). Note: Further sources of support may be requested if needed.
  4. Other (to be determined)

In lieu of or in addition to financial aid, students are encouraged to earn money to cover the cost of participation in the band program by actively participating in booster-sponsored fundraising activities. Work study to help the band program will also be considered in grant requests.
