At Garrison Forest we realize that joining our community is an investment in your daughter’s future. Financial aid affirms our commitment to help make a Garrison Forest education available regardless of a student’s economic means by bridging the gap between what a family can pay and the cost of tuition.
Garrison Forest’s need-based program provides financial aid to qualified families. The program has a limited budget and while the School cannot guarantee aid, we strive to provide aid to the widest socio-economic range of students our funds can afford. We believe that parents have an obligation to pay the educational expenses of their children; therefore, every family is expected to have exhausted all financing avenues available to them before a grant is awarded. This includes, but is not limited to, second mortgages, retirement funds, savings accounts, funds from extended family members, and bank loans. All Garrison Forest families pay some tuition.
Garrison Forest uses FACTS Management Systems, which helps independent schools across the country determine the need of a family. In reviewing each application for aid, the Financial Aid Committee considers both the FACTS recommendation and any additional financial information the family is asked to provide, including the family’s other children, additional dependents, all sources of income, priority of spending, debts and expenses.
