Tuition Assistance

For the 2019-2020 school year, we offered more than $4.2 million in tuition assistance awards to 33% of our student body. Tuition Assistance is available for PreKindergarten through Grade 12. Approximately 50% of the budget is typically awarded to Upper School students.

Tuition Assistance Application and Timeline for 2020-2021 School Year

Agnes Irwin uses an organization called School and Student Services (SSS) to help determine the financial need of a family. For general information about Financial Aid at Independent Schools, please consult the National Association of Independent Schools website. Please see our First-Time Family Guide to Tuition Assistance for commonly asked questions and detailed information. Current families should see the Returning Family Guide to Tuition Assistance for commonly asked questions and detailed information about the financial aid process.

Families who are interested in applying for Tuition Assistance are encouraged to complete their applications by December 11, 2019. Families who apply after early December should complete their tuition assistance application as soon as possible as funding will begin to be released to newly accepted families who have completed all aspects of the application process by the first deadline in mid-January. A checklist for new families and returning families is available to help you keep track of the information that is required to complete the tuition assistance application.
