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 highly-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 be reviewing second-round applications beginning in March. It is highly unlikely that we will have financial aid available following our first round of admission decisions; however, if you would still like to apply with that in mind, we welcome you to do so.
