Tuition Assistance

In addition to Tuition Assistance, The College School offers Scholarships.

We know that independent school tuition can be expensive for any family. The College School is dedicated to equity and inclusion in our community; to make our program more accessible we offer need-based tuition assistance to qualifying families whose students are enrolled full-time.

Families applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an application online and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS. You may submit your application online at There is a required non-refundable application fee of $40.

Once an online application is completed, the following information is required for FACTS to process your application:

  • Copies of your 2022 Federal tax return including all supporting tax schedules.
  • Copies of your 2023 W-2 forms for both you and your partner, if applicable.

All supporting documentation can be faxed to 1-866-315-9264 or mailed to:

An application for tuition assistance needs to be resubmitted each year, as the pool of families receiving aid shifts over time. Sometimes, family financial circumstances change considerably (e.g. job loss, etc.). As a result, we ask families to re-apply for assistance each school year.

For information on need-based tuition assistance or Racial Equity Scholarships, contact Jill Pampel, Director of Admissions and Marketing.
