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 for some families. Our Need-Blind Tuition Assistance program is designed to 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 on the basis of a family’s demonstrated need.

The Clariden School does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, political and social values, culture, religion, physical ability, family structure, or learning style in its administration of admission, financial aid, availability of program, and hiring practices.
