Tuition & Financial Assistance

Friends School realizes that choosing an independent school involves a significant financial commitment. At Friends, we strive to provide our families access to the transformative educational experience at our school.

Financial Assistance

Making a Friends School education both accessible and affordable is done primarily through our generous financial assistance program. Last year, Friends School awarded over $4.5 million to families who applied for financial assistance through TADS, our financial aid system.

All families who would like to apply for financial assistance should complete the process through TADS by December 15, 2017.

Returning families whose applications are complete by December 15 will receive notification of their financial assistance award with their re-enrollment paperwork in January 2018.

Award notifications for newly enrolling families will be sent with your Friends admission decision in February 2018. 


If you have questions about the financial assistance process or about our scholarship opportunities, please contact Jeanne Phizacklea, Assistant Head for Enrollment Management or call 410.649.3219. We are happy to help.

The 2018-2019 TADS financial assistance the application will be available in late August. Please call the Office of Admission at 410-649-3211 for additional information.
