Tuition Assistance

For the 2021-2022 school year, we offered approximately $4.8 million in tuition assistance awards to 37% 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.

You may request tuition assistance materials by contacting: Natalie J. Brennan ’05, Associate Director of Admission & Tuition Assistance, at or 610-801-1205, or Claire Lewis, Admission Office Manager, at or 610-801-1202.

Tuition Assistance Application and Timeline for the 2022-2023 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 tuition assistance process.

The first deadline to apply for consideration of Tuition Assistance for the 2022-2023 school year is December 10, 2021. If your family would like to be considered for tuition assistance as part of your application to Agnes Irwin, please notify your Admission Director immediately and indicate it on your Admission application. After our first deadline, the Tuition Assistance Committee will meet on a regular basis in 2022 and will look to review your application of consideration of tuition assistance in a timely fashion. 

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.
