The Island School is committed to attracting and retaining an economically diverse student body. In order to support this diversity, the school has established a financial aid program for families who may need some financial assistance in order to afford tuition.
Independent school education is a choice for families. Most families must make significant financial sacrifices to support this choice and must adjust their spending priorities accordingly. However, some families simply cannot cover the full cost of tuition, even after the most careful household budgeting. We strongly encourage families in these circumstances to consider applying for financial aid.
Financial aid may be available for families who qualify. To determine the most fair and equitable estimate of a family’s need, financial aid applications are processed by School and Student Services (SSS), which provides an independent assessment of financial need. The Island School Financial Aid Committee utilizes the SSS determinations, along with information gathered from the applicant, to determine a family’s eligibility. Financial aid decisions are made based on a family’s eligibility and the availability of financial aid funds. All financial and personal information provided to The Island School is reviewed only by the Financial Aid Committee and is completely confidential.
Financial aid applications must be completed and submitted by the first week of February for consideration for a financial aid award for the following school year.
