Financial Aid

Qualified students should apply to the Crowden School regardless of ability to pay full tuition.

The Crowden School budgets a significant fraction of revenue to financial assistance. The Crowden School admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin.

As part of our commitment to musical talent, academic excellence, and distinction in the student body, the actual cost of a Crowden education is substantially more than the tuition we charge—approximately $2,200–2,500 per pupil, which is raised by tax-deductible donations from families, alumni, and friends of the school. We annually solicit contributions to close this gap and support the provision of financial assistance.

Assistance is based on musical and academic potential, the commitment of the student and parents, and the financial need of the family. To be eligible for consideration for financial assistance, you must complete and submit the financial aid application and required financial documents by the due dates below.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

The Crowden School uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to process financial aid applications. All applications must be submitted electronically through the FACTS website. Incomplete financial aid forms will not be considered.

Policies

In the case of divorced or separated parents, the school requires that both parents complete and submit application forms to FACTS. The school will consider the assets of both parents before making any award, and will not be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses. If either parent has remarried, we also consider the assets of the step-parent, bearing in mind, of course, the obligations of that step-parent to his or her children from previous commitments.

Awards are revised annually and provision of continued aid is based on yearly qualification, musical and academic growth, and adherence to the school's standards. Parents are obliged to inform the school if there is any significant change in the family's income level or eligibility for aid during the school year.
