  • Financial Aid

    We use School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you provide in the Parents’ Financial Statement, SSS gives us an estimated amount your family can contribute to our tuition. This estimate, coupled with school policies and practices, is a starting point to help us make fair and objective decisions. While Kents Hill is unable to make a financial aid award to every student who is accepted and demonstrates need, historically nearly half of students receive need-based or merit financial aid. For a comprehensive guide to the financial aid process as outlined by SSS, click here.

    Parents and/or guardians of new admissions applicants who would like to be considered for financial aid are required to complete the financial aid application and submit all required documents. Returning families seeking financial aid must re-apply each school year in order to be considered, even if an award was made in the previous year.
