Financial Assistance

We are committed to making an Out-of-Door education as financially accessible as possible. The School annually distributes approximately $2 million dollars in need-based financial assistance awards and tuition remission to help bridge the gap between the cost of an Out-of-Door education and what a family can afford to pay. Over 21% of our students are recipients of these need-based funds.

  • Many of our financial assistance awards cover 50% or less of tuition. 
  • Financial assistance awards are granted on a yearly basis and renewals are based upon continued demonstrated need through an annual application process.
  • Financial assistance decisions are made independent from admissions decisions, and in no way impact a candidate’s admission. 
  • We do not offer athletic, academic or art/music scholarships. 
  • We do not participate in Family Empowerment, Gardiner, Hope, McKay, or Step Up scholarship programs.
