FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM
A child’s Forsyth experience is transformational. Our students are encouraged, supported, and empowered. They graduate as capable and confident young people, resilient and responsible global citizens.
Forsyth’s Financial Aid Program sustains a learning environment that is rich in diversity of identity, thought, and experience, and that provides exposure to different ideas and perspectives. As a result, students acquire an enhanced ability to think creatively and critically, gain an increased capacity for empathy and compassion, and realize more intellectual maturity.
Children learn best among peers with different cultural, economic, and geographic backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. A diverse school community benefits our students in the classroom today and out in the world tomorrow.
Through our Financial Aid Program, Forsyth strives to assist families for whom the cost of independent school tuition is the only barrier to attendance. The financial situation of all families varies, so the Financial Aid Committee considers each application individually. Families with a combined annual income of less than $150,000 typically receive some tuition assistance. More than 25% of Forsyth students receive financial aid, with an average grant award of $10,000. Regarding divorce or separation, the Financial Aid Committee considers both parents’ assets before making any award.
Families that receive financial aid also receive 50% off Extended Day Program fees (Before Care and After Care), plus a percentage reduction on League Sports fees. Learn more about Forsyth's Tuition & Fees.
Forsyth's online application for financial aid opens annually on November 1 and requires payment of a $40 application fee. All information is kept strictly confidential. The deadline for applications for the 2024/25 school year is Friday, January 26, 2024.
