Affording Rumsey Hall School
Welcome to the Rumsey Hall School's Financial Aid Program, crafted to ensure that a Rumsey education is within reach for all families. We understand that independent school education can be a significant investment, and we’re committed to assisting families in making it possible. Upon acceptance of admission, financial aid is determined based on demonstrated financial need and fund availability and does not affect a student’s application for admission.
Our process utilizes the Clarity Application, a tool schools use to evaluate a family's financial requirements based on information provided in the application. This encompasses details such as assets, income, expenses, and debts.
Financial Aid Application Deadlines
To receive priority consideration for financial aid, you must file the Clarity application according to the instructions by the deadlines below. Applications received after the deadline will be reviewed based on the availability of funds.
January 1, 2024 – Returning Students
January 15, 2024 – New Students
Initiating your journey is as simple as creating an account on the Clarity Application platform. The application is designed to be completed in under 30 minutes, offering convenience and efficiency, and can be accessed from a computer or mobile device. Upon completion, a $60 fee is required for submission.
- Families must submit a financial aid application each academic year to determine eligibility for assistance.
- A student must be in good academic standing while also upholding the values and ethos of the school is essential to continue benefiting from financial aid.
- In cases of separation or divorce, custodial and non-custodial parents must complete separate financial aid applications to ensure accurate evaluation of financial aid needs.
