Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance Application

Financial aid is awarded on the basis of need, number of applicants and available funds. A general guideline for eligibility is that a family can expect to devote between 10% to 15% of their gross annual income to the education of their children. These guidelines are not fixed and all applications are reviewed on an individual basis. Accordingly, special circumstances that can profoundly affect a family’s financial resources are considered in an appropriate manner.

Financial aid is available for Three Day (2021-22 SY only) and Five Day classes of Acorn Hill. It does not apply to our Parenting programs. Financial Aid decisions are sent out with the admission packet.

Tuition assistance applications are due February 1 for first round consideration. Please email your completed application to Monica at

Families who apply after the application deadline will be notified of admission and financial aid decisions once made.
