Financial Aid

We are committed to making a Beauvoir education accessible to families from a wide variety of economic backgrounds and welcome families to apply for financial aid. More than 1.8 million dollars in grants were awarded last year to 20 percent of Beauvoir students. Students currently receive grants ranging from approximately 3 percent to 97 percent of the full tuition. For families receiving a financial aid grant, additional funding is available for enrichment programs and various school events.  Admissions decisions are made without regard to whether a family has applied for financial aid. Financial aid applications are confidential and are not shared with the Admissions Committee. To help determine a fair award, Beauvoir relies on the expertise of TADS. Beauvoir uses the TADS calculation as a guide in determining a family's contribution. We ask both current and prospective parents to upload the documentation to TADS to accompany the application. The Admissions Team would welcome the opportunity to answer your questions or have a conversation with you at any time.  Please feel free to contact us.

For current Beauvoir families applying for Financial Aid, please log in to the Parent Resource Board and go to the pin titled Application and Financial Aid Process for Current Beauvoir Families.

Questions About Financial Aid

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Who can apply for financial aid?

    Anyone may apply for financial aid and the School encourages families to submit an application if they feel they may not be able to afford Beauvoir. Funds are allocated on the basis of need as determined by Beauvoir and TADS. Although we try to accommodate as many families as possible, we are not always able to meet all requests for such assistance.
  • Will my application for financial assistance affect my child’s chances for admission?

    No.  Beauvoir’s Admissions Committee does not know who is applying for financial aid. Admissions decisions are independent of financial aid decisions.
  • What factors do the Financial Aid Committee consider when making financial aid decisions?

    TADS uses a formula to calculate how much a family can contribute to their child's independent school education. It takes into consideration a family's income, assets and liabilities, as well as factors including, but not limited to, family size, living expenses and the number of children in tuition-charging schools. As the Financial Aid Committee looks at financial aid applications, it differentiates between necessary expenses and money spent for lifestyle choices. With respect to the latter, beyond a certain point, we are unable to provide aid to offset 'lifestyle' expenditures that could have been directed to education.
  • Is financial assistance available for other programs and services beyond tuition?

    Yes. Families who are receiving financial aid for tuition are eligible for financial assistance for the After Beauvoir Center (ABC) and the enrichment classes held after school. In addition, there is financial support for testing, the book fair and tutoring.
  • We only have one parent working. Does this affect our financial aid grant?

    The Financial Aid Committee will impute a full-time income for a parent who is able, but not currently working. If one parent is at home taking care of a pre-school aged child or an elderly parent, we give that careful consideration. Each case is individual and we recognize this.
  • What if I am a single parent?

    Beauvoir recognizes that each family’s situation is unique and welcomes a conversation and/or additional documentation to clarify a family's financial picture.  In general, if an applicant’s parents are living separately, both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete the financial aid application and submit required documentation. The Financial Aid Committee expects that both parents will contribute to the education of their child. If the non-custodial parent’s whereabouts are unknown, a letter (from a third party, such as a teacher or minister) will be required to verify that this parent has no contact with the applicant.
  • Which members of our family need to fill out an application for aid?

    Beauvoir considers the income and assets of any adult who plays a significant financial role in a student’s life. Therefore, financial information will be required of all adults involved in the applicant’s life, including stepparents if remarried, and both parents if separated or divorced.
  • Do I need to reapply for aid each year?

    Yes, grants are awarded for one year and families receiving financial aid must reapply each year if they wish to be reconsidered. Grants may be renewed only upon evidence of continuing need.
