Financial Aid

Carrollton is committed to access, diversity and a belief that schools should distribute financial aid funds based upon demonstrated financial need. A portion of the school’s budget is allocated by the Board of Trustees for tuition grants to students who contribute academic strength and/or ethnic, religious or financial diversity to the school community and who would not otherwise be able to attend.

It is important to realize that financial need is defined as the difference between your family’s resources and your child’s total educational expenses. The amount of aid offered to each family depends on the amount of money available and individual family circumstances. The amount of aid offered may vary somewhat from student to student depending on the different types of assistance available.

Carrollton is not always able to aid all students who apply. We expect the family to make every effort to provide as much of the cost of the education as is possible. In no case is the total cost of tuition awarded, and Financial Aid will not cover the total cost of tuition, books, fees or uniforms.
