Financial Aid

Indian Springs School awards $1.7 million in financial aid each year and is committed to providing an exceptional education to talented, motivated students regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
As the cost of independent schools continues to rise, Indian Springs recognizes the gap between the cost of tuition and a family's ability to pay. While the primary responsibility for funding the cost of education resides with the family, we understand the need for additional financial resources for many families. All aid is awarded in the form of a tuition grant. Indian Springs currently provides financial support to 27 percent of the student body.

In no way does a family's financial circumstances affect a student's admission decision. Financial aid awards are determined after an admission decision has been made. All financial aid information is kept confidential. Financial aid is available to students of any race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.

Need-Based Financial Aid

Need-Based Financial Aid awards are grants awarded to qualifying students who otherwise would not be able to attend Indian Springs. Indian Springs is proud to offer a number of named, need-based financial aid scholarships. All students applying for financial aid will be considered for scholarships.

Indian Springs works with the School and Students Services (SSS) for need-based financial aid applications. This organization provides Indian Springs with a confidential statement of need-based upon an application for financial aid completed by parents (Parents' Financial Statement—PFS). Additionally, families are asked to provide a copy of their tax information in order to verify the information provided in the PFS. Indian Springs will use this information to help make fair and objective financial aid decisions.

*Please keep in mind the deadlines for need-based financial aid. Families who are interested in need-based financial aid must meet the appropriate deadlines in order to be considered. Interested families are encouraged to complete the financial aid application process at the same time as the admission application process.
