Affordability

At Brookstone School, we do not want tuition to get in the way of your child's education. There are multiple financial aid options the school provides to make your family's Brookstone education possible. We aim to provide deserving, well-qualified students with financial aid so that they may have the opportunity to experience all Brookstone offers.

Does your family qualify?

There are several factors that determine a family's qualifications: grade level, income, assets, obligations, and number of dependents. All financial aid awards are need-based and separate from merit scholarships. 

How does Brookstone determine need?

After your family completes the online financial aid application and submits required documents, Brookstone School's financial aid committee reviews your family's level of need. Family size, annual household expenses, and total income determine eligibility, and awards may be offered on the basis of financial need to students who have met the requirements for admission to Brookstone School in grade PreK through 12. 

How does my family apply?

Parents interested in the financial aid program will need to complete the FAST application online and upload their 2017 income taxes for income verification. The application for the 2019-2020 school year will go live on January 1, 2019. The application fee is $41 per family, and all aid applications are due March 1, 2019.

Does Brookstone require a copy of my tax returns?

The FAST application is a comprehensive application that can take some time to complete. You will need your most recent tax return before beginning the process. 

Is financial aid automatically renewed each year?

No. Brookstone requires families to reapply for aid each school year. 

Does Brookstone offer scholarships?

Brookstone does offer Honor Scholarships to a select number of rising 9th graders who are new to Brookstone. However, there are no other scholarships available, only need-based financial aid.
