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

The Field School offers financial aid to approximately 20% of its students. We are deeply committed to making our program available to students regardless of a family’s economic need, and as such our financial aid budget is roughly 15% of our total operating budget each year. 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.

List of 2 items.

  • January 1: Financial Aid Applications are Due for Current Students

    Financial aid applications are due for current Field financial aid recipients and current Field first-time financial aid applicants. Awards will be sent with re-enrollment at the end of January. Provisional awards are based on the prior year’s (2019) tax return. 2020 tax returns must be submitted to SSS no later than April 30 to confirm the final award. If a family’s financial circumstance has changed significantly, the final award will be modified to reflect the change.
  • January 15: Financial Aid Applications Due for New Students

    Financial aid applications are due for new applicants to The Field School. All financial aid applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the TADS Financial Aid Worksheet. Completing this worksheet will greatly expedite the process of submitting the actual online application. You must also submit electronically, to TADS, a complete copy of your 2018 tax returns and W-2 forms. Parents who own their own business will be required to submit the appropriate business forms as well.
