      *Please Note: Our financial aid budget comes entirely from many generous donors and friends who are excited to support our families. Because tuition assistance is part of our strategy to partner with parents, it is included in our annual budgeting and operations planning. Even if you’re unsure if you qualify for assistance, we encourage you to apply.

      Applying for tuition assistance does not affect a student’s application for admission. Admission decisions are based on a student’s qualifications and the likelihood that they will contribute to the strength of our school community.
