Financial Aid

In keeping with Rectory School’s mission to attract and maintain a diversified student body, financial aid is available to support families who would otherwise not be able to meet the cost of attending. Rectory provides $2.2 million in financial aid, to 30% of the student body. 

Financial aid is granted to families on a need basis to those who qualify, which is determined by Clarity. While Rectory strives to provide support to all families who qualify and are accepted, we do not have the resources to do so. Therefore, the strength of a prospective student's application is used in determining distribution of the aid. Here's a helpful link to find out information on financing or loan programs through Tuition Management Systems:

Application Deadline: February 1

In order to be considered for financial aid, prospective students must successfully meet the deadlines and criteria for admission. February 1 is the financial aid application deadline. Applications may be submitted after the deadline but the greatest chance of receiving aid is to submit prior to the deadline.

Application Fee Waivers

For families, Clarity charges $60 to apply. Clarity automatically waives application fees for families whose income falls below a certain threshold. As a demonstration of our commitment to access, our income caps for automatic fee waivers are the highest in the industry. One fee covers all students, and the application can be sent to any school accepting Clarity.
