2022-23 Financial Aid Application Deadline

The deadline for filling out a Financial Aid application for the 2022-23 school year is December 1.

If this will be your first time applying for aid from Grace, or if you have any questions at all, please email Sarah Adler, Director of Financial Aid.

Commitment to Financial Aid

Grace Church School is the leading school in New York City in its commitment to Financial Aid as reported to NAIS with regard to size of school, size of grant, and number of students receiving financial aid.

Maintaining a strong financial aid program and offering assistance to families who demonstrate need is a cherished tradition of the school. More than 28% of our students receive some form of financial aid. Our average grant is over $39,000.

Many factors are considered when determining whether a family demonstrates the need for financial aid such as family income, net worth, assets, debt, and the number of children in tuition-charging schools. The Financial Aid Committee encourages any family experiencing need to apply for financial aid. Applications for continued assistance must be filed annually.

Parents seeking tuition aid should indicate their interest when applying to the school. Applications for financial aid should be filled out online through SSS. Parents are informed of financial aid decisions with the acceptance notification. Families who are currently enrolled at the school will be informed of the annual decision with their reenrollment contract.

We hope to make a Grace Church School education available to as many families as possible. If you have any questions about this process, be sure to let me know.
