Financial Aid at Tenacre
If you are just beginning the process of researching independent schools for your child, you have probably been attracted to the quality education, small class size, and attention to the needs of each child that schools such as Tenacre provide. At the same time, you may be concerned about meeting the high costs of this education. Tenacre believes that talented, motivated students should not be denied the chance to attend Tenacre School solely for financial reasons. The vitality of our community is enhanced by the socio-economic breadth of our student body.
Applying for Financial Aid
Applying for Financial Aid does not affect your child’s chances of admission. The processes are simultaneous, but separate. That said, each family also bears the primary responsibility for financing a student's education. For example, financial aid awards will not subsidize a parents choice not to work if there are no dependents at home during the school day, or discretionary expenses such as those related to lifestyle.
