  • Among "Schools with 200-400 Students", view the boarding schools with the highest percentage of students on financial aid.
  • Keep in mind that challenging and creative education programs at boarding schools require a substantial amount of resources.
  • Generally, the full cost of educating a student at any boarding school exceeds the cost of tuition by several thousand dollars - schools rely on other revenue sources (e.g., endowments, annual giving, etc.) in addition to tuition revenue to cover their costs.
  • In that sense, all students at boarding schools receive financial aid.
  • When schools offer "financial aid" (in the traditional sense of the phrase) to reduce tuition, those reductions are in addition to the already subsidized cost of full tuition.
  • Keep this in mind when assessing the full value that boarding schools provide for your investment.
