Tuition & Financial Aid

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.

Financial Aid

While the primary responsibility for financing a student's education remains with the family, all families may apply for a financial aid award. Each year, Harvey allocates more than $2 million in need-based financial aid. We are committed to attracting a socioeconomically diverse student population which cultivates and strengthens our thriving community of impassioned learners.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Families interested in applying for financial aid must submit a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) through the School and Student Services by NAIS (SSS) to assess a family’s financial need and determine the potential amount of aid to be awarded. To learn more about the financial aid process and SSS, download the Family Guide to Financial Aid and visit the SSS website.

The Harvey School SSS ID number is 3742.

Application Deadline

Financial Aid applications must be submitted by February 1 in order to receive full consideration. Qualified families applying after the deadline are awarded aid if funds are still available.

Do I Need to Apply Each Year?

Yes, families must reapply for financial aid each year, and adjustments to an award may occur due to a change in a family's financial situation. However, The Harvey School is committed to providing aid during the student's entire time at the School.
