Financial Aid

While the cost of tuition at The Country School is an expense, the value of an Education that Lasts a Lifetime is priceless. Families who feel the cost of attending The Country School is out of their reach should not hesitate to apply for financial aid. In recent years, financial aid awards have ranged between $500 and 60 percent of tuition.

Financial aid is determined by The Country School Financial Aid Committee with information from School and Student Services (SSS) which is managed by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). SSS analyzes financial data provided by families. To apply for financial aid, go to https://www.solutionsbysss.com.
