Financial Aid at Grier School

Investing in a top-quality education is a significant financial commitment, and we recognize that some families may need assistance to pay Grier’s full tuition of $54,500.

To assist families in meeting the cost of Grier’s tuition, we offer need-based grants, merit-based scholarships, and payment plans. Our need-based financial aid represents the difference between the cost of tuition and the expected contribution from parents and extended family. School and Student Services (SSS) processes our financial aid applications and reports to Grier a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS), which we use as a guideline to determine a family’s contribution towards the investment of a Grier education. Our financial aid grants are generally renewable through a student’s graduation from Grier, but we require families to file a new SSS application annually so that we can make any necessary adjustments based on changes in circumstance or tuition.

Grier also offers a limited number of merit scholarships based on extraordinary academic promise, as reflected in a candidate’s academic record and her SSAT scores.

If you believe you may qualify for need-based financial support or both need- and merit-based aid, please follow these steps to apply.
