At Berkeley Hall, we are deeply committed to promoting socioeconomic diversity in our community. To that end, the school awards annually over $1 million in need-based grants to qualified students from kindergarten to 8th grade.
Berkeley Hall School belongs to the School and Student Service (SSS) which requires parents to complete a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and which collects all required supporting documentation annually. The PFS gathers in one place all relevant information about family size, income, and expenses. SSS analyzes the information on the PFS and estimates the family's ability to contribute to all educational expenses.
In the case of divorced or separated parents, both natural parents must submit Parents’ Financial Statements and provide all required documents.
Financial Aid Timetable
The financial aid application process occurs at the same time as the admissions process. However, the decisions to accept and to award assistance are separate. Awards are made by the Financial Aid Committee and published on the same day as acceptances. The school maintains strict confidentiality for all financial aid recipients. Please feel free to email Director of Admissions & Financial Aid Nathalie Miller with questions.
