Financing an independent education is a major investment in your child’s future. The Grauer School offers financial aid based on a combination of financial need, academic scholarship, and demonstrated leadership. The mission of The Grauer School financial aid program is to provide educational opportunities for exceptional students who represent our core values: resourcefulness, perseverance, accountability, self-advocacy, intellectual curiosity, and compassion. Financial aid enriches the experience of every member of the Grauer community.
