Every Moment Counts

A Stevens education encourages inquiry, critical thinking and collaborative problem solving.

Purposeful learning, every moment of every day, is why Stevens graduates are More Than Ready for success in high school and beyond.

Affording Stevens

Choosing a Stevens education is an investment in your child's future. We recognize that your decision to send your child to an independent school means a commitment to financial planning. The financial aid program is designed to help bridge the gap between what a family can afford and tuition. The financial aid program is available for students in PreK – 8th grade. Stevens strives to build community that incorporates a diversity of culture, viewpoints and experiences and to provide access to a Stevens education to a wide socioeconomic range of families. Financial aid benefits all students in the school.

Applying for financial aid has no bearing upon the admission committee's deliberations and their assessment of an applicant’s potential as a Stevens student. Decisions regarding admission and eligibility for financial aid are made independently of one another but are generally presented to families at the same time. This allows families to make an informed decision when executing an enrollment contract.

Financial aid is in the form of need-based grants, which do not need to be repaid.

"We’ve always felt that tuition was not an expense, but rather an investment in our children and we're confident that we will never make a more important decision than when we chose to send our children to Stevens."
