Financial Aid General Information

20% of the student body receives financial assistance ranging from partial to almost full tuition.


There is no question that an independent school education is costly, and we realize that many families are concerned about meeting these expenses. Community understands that the primary financial responsibility for a student’s education rests with his or her family, and the school naturally assumes that families will do what they can to pay school costs, including maximizing parents’ earnings, adjusting spending priorities, and managing assets. To make a Community School education affordable for families of academically qualified student whose ability to pay school costs is limited, financial aid  is available.

Eligibility for financial assistance is based on a family’s demonstrated need and all financial aid is given in the form of grants that do not have to be repaid. Families from a wide range of income levels have qualified for assistance based on individual family circumstances.

An application for aid will not influence an application for admission. All information regarding a family’s application for financial aid is confidential. Decisions regarding amounts of financial assistance are determined by the Financial Aid Committee after the Admissions Committee determines eligibility for admission.
