Tuition & Financial Aid

Field believes in socioeconomic diversity as a part of its commitment to inclusivity. Our Board of Trustees sets tuition annually after careful consideration of what the school needs in order to educate students according to our mission: Self-Discovery, Skills of Mind, Generosity of Heart. Tuition for the 2021-22 school year is $51,200.

Financial Aid

At Field, we strive to create an inclusive community of learners that reflects the culturally, racially and economically diverse population of the D.C. metropolitan area. Our financial aid program increases access to a Field education. Field’s financial aid budget is roughly 15% of our total operating budget each year and the program assists 20% of the student population. All financial aid is need-based. All financial aid is need-based.If you anticipate the need for financial aid at any time in your student’s tenure at Field, you are strongly encouraged to apply for aid in your first year. The Field School has a careful process for allocating its financial aid budget across each year and across graduating classes. Therefore, Field cannot consider applications from families returning to the school unless the need is newly arisen. In such cases, the school will do its best to offer aid to meet the needs within its budget, but financial aid is not guaranteed.

Process & Deadlines

The Field School uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. The code for The Field School is 200377.
