A Harvey Education is Possible.

According to the Council for American Private Education, graduates of independent schools are significantly more likely to be ready for college-level work than their public school peers. This is why, for more than 100 years, families have chosen to send their children to independent schools, such as The Harvey School.


Many families believe they cannot afford independent school tuition. However, don't let the cost deter you from applying to Harvey. Let us assist you in exploring all your options.


We are committed to attracting highly qualified and talented students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.


Families from a wide range of income levels apply and receive need-based financial aid toward tuition. Payment plans are available that allow families to make tuition payments over the course of the school year.

A long-term investment in your child's future.

Tuition Assistance

The Harvey School seeks a student body that represents varied economic backgrounds. Our financial aid program and our various payment options strive to make attendance at The Harvey School a reality for as many families as possible. That is not to say that we are inexpensive. Recognizing that our tuition is not accessible to everyone, our financial aid policies strive to provide an opportunity for all families who seek an independent school education to come and explore our school.

Applying for Financial Assistance

Prospective and current families seeking financial assistance are asked to submit an application through the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS). The Harvey School SSS ID number is 3742. Please note that this service does not provide a source of funding - their role is to provide our Tuition Assistance committee with an estimated family contribution (EFC) toward the tuition costs. The Tuition Assistance committee uses the EFC as a tool in determining an appropriate grant allocation for each student while keeping within an overall financial aid budget established each year. The Harvey School will make the final determination for financial assistance.
