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. Rectory provides $2 million in financial aid, to 30% of the student body. Please click on the button below to see an estimate of what your tuition obligation may be:

Financial aid is granted to families on a need basis to those who qualify, which is determined by the School and Student Services by NAIS. 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.

In order to be considered for financial aid, prospective students must successfully meet the deadlines and criteria for admission. The forms must be filed with the School Scholarship Service of Princeton, New Jersey, by March 1, 2019. Missing the financial aid deadline may jeopardize your child's chances of receiving financial assistance from Rectory School.
