Applying for Financial Aid
Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $15,866 for lower grades K–4 and $16,818 for middle school grades 5-8. Tuition is voted on by Membership each January. Financial aid is available at Crestmont for applicants who demonstrate financial need. The goals of Crestmont’s financial aid program are to facilitate a socio-economically diverse student body. The school uses the services of School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools to evaluate a family’s financial need. In addition, Crestmont has a supplementary application.
When considering financial aid requests, the Crestmont Financial Aid Committee will take into account the recommendation of SSS as well as other factors such as the number of applicants for aid that year and the amount of money available. The decision to award financial aid and how much to award is solely up to the members of the Crestmont Financial Aid Committee. Decisions are made independently from the admissions decisions and do not affect an applicant’s opportunity for acceptance. All financial information submitted is held in confidence.
