College Financial Aid

Financial Aid for College

Our College Counseling Department has provided several resources on this page to help guide our students and parents through the processing of applying for financial aid for college.

Types of Financial Aid

  1. Merit-based: academic, athletic, leadership, talent, etc. May require separate application, essay, or audition, but often based solely on students’ application for admission.

  2. Need-based: awarded based on family’s ability to pay; must file financial aid application(s).

    Each year, The College Board's CSS Profile gives access to more than $9 billion for thousands of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.
