Affording Independent Schools


As independent schools, our goal is to make our education accessible to all qualified applicants.  To this end, financial aid/tuition assistance may be available.  Families of all backgrounds and socio-economic levels are encouraged to apply for financial aid if there are any concerns about affording an independent school education.

Schools use different third-party systems to help calculate what level of aid may be needed.  Common financial aid systems include: School and Student Services (SSS), Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), and Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS).  Please check which system is used by the schools on your apply list. 

Financial aid is limited at each school, so be sure to complete the process by the financial aid deadline (generally in February) to make sure your application will be considered.  You will need to be provide tax information, so be sure to do your taxes early or have accurate estimates ready for the application process
