FINANCIAL AID – Making Tuition Affordable
The Long Ridge School is committed to a student body that is economically, ethnically, and socially diverse. Keeping our tuition as low as possible is one way the Board of Trustees tries to enable the broadest possible group of students to benefit from a Long Ridge education. The Board recognizes that tuition is a major expense for families and and we are proud of our relatively generous financial aid program.
Awards are available for current and incoming Nursery through Grade Five families and are solely based on demonstrated need. Financial Aid is determined using the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a division of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Interested families submit a Parents’ Financial Statement, one for each parent in the case of separated or divorced parents, providing detailed financial information to SSS. SSS evaluates the information based on a formula nationally accepted by independent schools. The results of the report are then sent to The Long Ridge School and the family.
