Loans & Grants

Our goal is to be the best boarding school in California with a committment to doing all within our means to make our unique school’s tuition affordable through loans and grants. Grants are awarded based on a family’s financial needs relative to all others applying for aid. The loans and grants we offer are made possible through the generous support of school alumni, parents, and friends. This year, over $450,000 was awarded to nearly one-fifth of the student population. To begin the application process, click here to learn how to apply.
