Choosing an independent school education is a major financial commitment. Nashoba Brooks School actively seeks to build and maintain a community where diversity in all its forms is supported; and we encourage families with financial need to apply for financial assistance.
All financial assistance awards are based upon a family’s demonstrated need as assessed by the School and Student Services (SSS). Awards vary depending upon demonstrated need according to SSS and the amount of money available in the school’s budget designated for financial assistance.
Our school community is committed to helping families effectively meet the cost of a Nashoba Brooks School education. Through our commitment to need-based financial assistance, we offer grants and three payment plans to help families. All grants take into consideration the total cost of enrolling at our school. Additionally, the Financial Assistance Committee recognizes the significant cost of our Extended Day and Supervised Study Programs. The determined grant percentage for tuition will automatically be applied to the cost of both of these Programs.
This section of the site is designed to inform families of all income levels about the financial assistance process at Nashoba Brooks. Please take a few minutes to explore the opportunities available to you. If you have additional questions, please feel free to email Maggie Barbuto, Director of Finance and Operations. Please note that any questions emailed will be held strictly confidential.
