A progressive private school education is more accessible than you might think.
To ensure that our school embodies our core values of excellence, integrity, and diversity, we offer financial aid that aims to make a Bennett Day education accessible to families from all income levels. For our families, tuition is never “one-size fits all” and tuition at Bennett can be adjusted to meet a family’s unique financial situation. Our financial aid is made possible by Bennett Grant awards that can range from $500 to nearly 85% of tuition expenses, based on the calculated family need and circumstances, and the availability of Bennett Grant dollars in a given school year.
Financial aid is an ongoing commitment between the school and our families, and we anticipate that Bennett Grant awards will follow the child throughout their school career, reflective of a family’s unique circumstances. To apply for financial aid, families submit a Bennett Grant application* through our third-party partner, TADS, each year.
*Please note our Grant application for the 2023-24 school year will open on October 10, 2022.
