Affording Pine Crest School

Pine Crest School is committed to building a socioeconomically diverse student body. Our need-based financial and inclusion aid program helps make the full Pine Crest experience accessible to families. Financial aid assists with base tuition; inclusion aid ensures that students may participate in extracurricular activities.

Financial and inclusion aid are made possible by our generous community through annual fundraising, endowment revenues, and part of the School's budget. Learn more about our financial and inclusion aid program.

Thanks to donations from alumni, families, and friends of the School, Pine Crest offers financial aid to students based upon demonstrated need. Pine Crest administers a financial aid program that supports approximately 14% of our student body.

Financial Aid and Inclusion Aid

Applying for Financial and Inclusion Aid at Pine Crest School will not affect your acceptance.

We partner with School and Student Services (SSS) for the financial aid process to help determine a family's ability to pay tuition costs.

Financial aid is awarded according to demonstrated financial need as determined by SSS. Each family's ability to contribute to the cost of its child's education is based upon information supplied to SSS.

All financial aid awards are kept confidential and re-evaluated annually.
