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 Indexed Tuition 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 is indexed to meet a family’s unique financial situation. Our Indexed Tuition is made possible by Bennett Grant awards that can range from $500 to 100% of tuition expenses, based on the calculated family need and circumstances, and the availability of Bennett Grant dollars in a given school year.
Indexed Tuition 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 Indexed Tuition, families submit a Bennett Grant application through our third-party partner, TADS, each year.
