  • How is financial aid calculated?

    The amount of aid is determined upon careful evaluation of a family’s financial situation and may be renewed each year as long as family circumstances remain the same. Numerous factors including income, number of children, amount of tuition paid at other schools and other life expenses and circumstances are taken into consideration.
  • Financial aid process for applicants (incoming families)

    Incoming families must apply for financial aid in the fall during the admissions application period. The online application is available October 9–November 8, 2019. Applications must be complete by the November 8 deadline to be eligible for need-based financial assistance. Awards will be sent with admissions decisions in January 2020.
