Affording Chapin

Chapin’s dedication to welcoming families from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds is demonstrated by our substantial commitment to providing generous financial grants to families.

Our long-standing financial aid program is guided by both our Mission Statement, as well as the National Association of Independent School’s (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid Administration

Providing financial grants aligns with our mission to be an equitable and inclusive school community. Every family carries the financial responsibility for a child’s education, to the full extent that they are able. All grants are based solely on a family’s financial resources, and admissions decisions are made without regard to financial need. Additionally, tuition assistance is available to students at all grade levels.
