Tuition Assistance Deadlines & Forms

At Berkeley Hall, we are deeply committed to promoting socioeconomic diversity in our community. Families received $1.5 million for the 2023-24 school year in tuition assistance from kindergarten to 8th grade.

Berkeley Hall School partners with School and Student Services (SSS) where parents complete a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The PFS gathers in one place all relevant information about family size, income, and expenses. SSS analyzes the information on the PFS and estimates the family's ability to contribute to educational expenses. The PFS must be completed annually.
In case of separation or divorce, both custodial and non-custodial parents are required to complete the school's Tuition Assistance process.
Tuition Assistance Timetable
The tuition assistance application process occurs at the same time as the admissions process. However, the decisions to accept and to award assistance are separate. Awards are made by the Tuition Assistance Committee and generally published on the same day as acceptances. The school maintains strict confidentiality for all tuition assistance decisions. Please feel free to email our Chief Financial Officer, Doug Gibbs with questions.
