Dunn is a school community of exceptional and passionate students. Our need-based tuition assistance program removes barriers to help ensure the enrollment of the most outstanding applicants.

Dunn School is committed to providing a quality education to qualified students who, for financial reasons, would otherwise be unable to attend

Our tuition assistance program is designed to bridge the gap between what a family can contribute and what it actually costs to attend. We offer financial aid on the basis of documented financial need of the family and the availability of funds. Assistance is available to students in all grades (6-12).
