Financial Aid

Interior Masthead

The financial aid budget for school year 2023-2024 is over $5.0 million dollars. Approximately 38 percent of the student body receives some form of financial aid. Grants vary according to family circumstances as presented and evaluated in their financial aid application, the school's financial aid policy, and the school's ability to meet requested need.

Financial aid grants are awarded on the basis of a family's demonstrated need and are employed using objective standards established by Clarity Financial. The Friends Select School Financial Aid Committee uses this information to determine grants based on the committee's own guidelines and priorities.

Financial Aid Application Process

Families who are interested may apply for financial aid online starting October 1, 2023. Applications are submitted only online; hard copies are no longer being accepted.

The admission office will be mailing instructions in early October to assist in the completion of the financial aid application to those families who have indicated an interest in financial aid. Should you find further assistance helpful, look over this application guide or please contact us.
