Tuition and Aid

Financial Aid

Our financial aid program is need-based, and is designed to make Brooks School accessible to qualified students. We accomplish this goal by bridging the gap between what a family can afford and the actual cost of a Brooks education. Although we are unable to fund all families interested in Brooks, we understand the difficulty in financing an independent school education, and will do all that we can to help make this educational opportunity possible. We are proud to award $4.5 million in financial aid to students each year. (Currently 30 percent of Brooks School students receive financial aid) The average financial aid award = $41,886

Because we cannot provide aid to all of our qualified applicants, Brooks will wait-list an applicant who qualifies for financial aid if we do not have both financial aid and a place available. Once an applicant who qualifies for financial aid has been wait-listed, both a place and financial aid must become available before that applicant will be taken off the wait-list.

Those applicants interested in applying for financial aid should check the appropriate box on the inquiry form and application. Please click here to download the Brooks School Financial Aid instruction sheet. We ask that you complete a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) on the School and Student Service Application Processing Center's website between October 2 and January 15. Applications received after that date are considered as long as funds remain available. Decisions on financial aid awards accompany acceptances and enrollment contracts.

If you do not believe that you can afford to pay the cost of a Brooks education, then you should apply for financial aid. If you do not qualify, we may call and ask if you want your son or daughter to be considered for admission without aid. READ MORE FAQS.
