At New Canaan Country School, we believe that economic diversity is essential to the educational experience for all families. It is a long-standing policy of the Board of Trustees that the cost of an independent school education should not be a deterrent to any prospective student or family. Country School offers need-based financial aid to qualified students whose families need support to afford full tuition.
Admission and financial aid are two separate processes. Applying for financial aid has no bearing on the Admission Committee’s decision regarding acceptance into the school. Given that our priority admission deadline of January 15 has passed, we will continue to review applications on a space-available basis. While it is highly unlikely that we will have financial aid available following our first round of admission decisions, we nonetheless welcome you to contact us for more information.
