Financial Aid

Stratford Friends School provides need-based financial assistance to qualified students. In the administration of its financial aid program, Stratford Friends School does not discriminate on the basis of race, national, or ethnic origin.

Financial aid is funded through a combination of resources, including annual giving, endowment income, and general operating income. Therefore, limited financial aid funds are available each year resulting in the top award being only 50% of the total tuition.

Financial aid is applied appropriately to the periodic tuition payments, but aid can be withdrawn if a family is not current in all payments to the school.
Financial aid is awarded to all returning students before awards are made to new students.

All financial aid awards are made by the Financial Aid Committee. The committee consists of the Head of School, the Director of Finance & Operations and the Director of Admissions.
