Breaking Stereotypes: Affording Boarding School

Independent boarding schools are quite diverse, enrolling students from all different socio-economic backgrounds.

Often independent boarding schools will help you manage your budget by offering individual tuition payment plans over the course of the school year.

Additionally, financial aid is offered to those qualified applicants. Families who are interested in applying are required to log in to School and Student Services (SSS) in order to complete the online Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). Your financial information is securely analyzed, and this information is used by the schools to help determine the amount of tuition that you can afford and any potential financial assistance that they may be able to offer you. If applying, it is important to make sure that the individual schools’ financial aid deadlines are met.
