The Galloway School is committed to admitting qualified students regardless of a family's ability to pay the full cost of tuition.
The purpose of financial aid is to enhance and enrich the Galloway community and educational experience by financially supporting students who are particularly well suited for Galloway and who are challenged to attend due to financial limitations. Financial aid supports Galloway's commitment to inclusiveness as articulated in the school's Diversity Policy Statement.
Prioritization of Aid
While Galloway recognizes that all students are important members of its community, financial aid will be provided to students who demonstrate financial need in the following order of priority:
- Students currently enrolled in the school and already receiving financial aid;
- Students currently enrolled in the school and requesting aid for the first time;
- Newly admitted students.
While Galloway does not formally exclude any grade levels from receiving aid, aid is limited and the school may balance aid differently across levels in any given year.
Every family receiving aid is asked to pay some portion of the tuition. If a family has multiple children receiving aid from the school, siblings' awards may not necessarily equal the same percentage of each student's gross tuition.
While financial aid awards are need-based, a family's payment history may be taken into consideration as well.
Aid for Items Beyond Tuition
As Galloway considers participation in school-sponsored activities an essential part of school life, financial aid recipients will receive an additional award, capped at $350 per student, to be used for activities not covered by tuition. The percentage of the $350 activity allowance awarded will equal the percent that the financial aid award is of that student's gross tuition. Amounts not used in an academic year cannot be carried over to another year.
