Helping Make Independent Education Affordable

We believe that the cost of an excellent independent school education should not be a roadblock to any family, regardless of income. However, the published cost of tuition can make it seem an impossible goal for many. 

Our hope is to make the advantages of a Roycemore School education—small class sizes, differentiated instruction, being known personally, a welcoming, diverse community—a reality for as many academically qualified students as possible. That is why financially qualifying families may be able to take advantage of our Sliding Scale Tuition, designed to increase access and give families the opportunity to pay according to their demonstrated need.

It is very important to us that concerns about tuition costs not keep your family from learning more about the opportunity for your child to attend Roycemore. Please contact Amanda Avery, Director of Admissions & Financial Aid, if you have any questions about the process or would like to arrange a visit.

Sliding Scale Tuition - How it Works

Families wishing to be considered for sliding scale tuition must apply for tuition assistance during the enrollment application process. To help us objectively calculate what a family is able to contribute to educational expenses, families are asked to complete an online application through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format, faxed or mailed to FACTS, including copies of your most recent Federal tax forms.

Multiple factors are considered by FACTS when evaluating a family’s ability to pay, including but not limited to: household income, family size, the number of children attending tuition-charging schools, and assets and liabilities not reflected in household income. Not all families who qualify for a reduced rate of tuition will be offered the rate for which they qualify. 

Over 50% of Roycemore's current families receive financial aid in the form of tuition reduction.

Contact Amanda Avery, Director of Admissions & Financial Aid, with specific questions about affording a Roycemore education, as well as the FACTS application process.
