Tuition Aid

Friends School is committed to an economically diverse student body and welcomes the opportunity to provide financial support to families who need it to help send their children to the school. The school allocates more than $500,000 each year devoted to tuition aid and that money currently supports 40% of our student body. The average aid award is $9,576. The criterion for tuition aid is financial need. The school expects families to finance their children’s education to the extent that they can.

We use School and Student Services to process financial aid applications. School and Student Services is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Based on the financial information you provide, SSS gives us an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. This estimate helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
