Affording a Calverton Education

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Applying for Financial Aid
The Calverton School offers financial aid to enroll mission-appropriate day students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 who would not otherwise have access to an independent school education due to financial constraints. At Calverton, we believe an effective learning environment includes an appreciation for diversity. The awarding of financial aid makes our school more accessible and affordable, thus fostering a more financially-diverse school community.

Calverton uses the services of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to assist in financial aid calculations. Grants are awarded to families on an annual basis (first come, first serve) until funds are depleted.

The Calverton School does not discriminate on the basis of ancestry/national origin, color, gender identity/expression, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation in its admission or financial aid process.
