Affording Rumsey Hall School

We understand that independent school education can be a significant investment, and we’re committed to assisting families in making it possible. Tuition assistance does not affect a student’s application for admission. A family’s application for tuition assistance is considered separately from the application for admission.

Rumsey Hall School uses the School and Student Services (SSS) application to collect and analyze each family’s financial profile. A related service of NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools), SSS applies a standardized methodology to estimate how much a family can contribute to an independent school. Our Financial Aid Committee then reviews completed applications and distributes need-based financial aid. The Admission Office sends enrollment contracts containing the award of financial assistance to those who qualify for financial aid.
