Affording Dunn

We're committed to helping you afford Dunn.

There are a lot of myths about private school tuition. Many families assume they can't afford a private school education. Others are sure they have too much income to qualify for financial aid.

 The truth is, Dunn families pay a range of tuitions based on what they can afford - from $1,500 to full tuition. And many factors determine an aid award, often enabling families with higher incomes to qualify.

We can walk you through the financial aid process step-by-step. It's always confidential. To  get started with financial aid paperwork, please mark the appropriate box on your child's Application for Admission.

Statement of Financial Aid Philosophy

Dunn School is committed to providing a quality education to qualified students who for financial reasons would otherwise be unable to attend the school. Dunn’s financial aid program is designed to bridge the gap between what a family can contribute and what it actually costs to attend the school. Dunn School offers financial aid on the basis of documented financial need of the family and the availability of funds. Read more about our Financial Aid Philosophy.
