Tuition Assistance

The Clariden School is proud to offer need-based assistance to qualifying students. While our tuition is competitively priced, we recognize that the cost of a private education can be a barrier to some families. Our Tuition Assistance program is designed to break that barrier and offer families access to our high quality education.

Applying for tuition assistance has no effect on a student’s application for admission to Clariden. Decisions regarding Tuition Assistance are made by the Admissions Committee on the basis of a family’s demonstrated need and the availability of funds from the school. An applicant is initially accepted for enrollment and then the family’s application for aid is considered.

The Clariden School adheres to federal, state, and local laws that require non-discriminatory practice in the administration of our school’s Tuition Assistance policies. Clariden does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law in the administration of its educational, admissions, financial aid, and other policies and programs.
