Tuition and Fees

Indexed Tuition Range
 
  • The Board of Trustees is determined to make a Greenfield education accessible to families from a wide range of economic backgrounds, and wants to avoid the “sticker shock” that can occur when families are presented only with the upper end of the range. Recruiting other families to share in the costs and benefits of our premier, college-focused program, while still maintaining an appropriately small class size, will allow us to provide additional resources for your student to excel academically, socially, aesthetically, physically, and morally.
    How does it work?
    • For those for whom investing at the top end of the range seems beyond their reach, in order to find the right tuition investment for a family regardless of the number of children applying, Greenfield School uses FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) as an objective and independent third party. FAST is a third party service which provides the school with a need-based tuition aid analysis and report. This report provides a recommendation for how much a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition.
    • To determine your place on the tuition range, please complete the Financial Grant Application found on the FAST website https://www.ismfast.com/FastPage.php?id=3041066d535925bd4bf82b9f1c54c1f5 by FEBRUARY 15th along with paying their application fee online at their secure website. Please consider using the Worksheet as a guide and follow the FAST instructions carefully to ensure the proper handling of your request.
  • We require both custodial and non-custodial parents to complete a FAST application.
  • Index tuition grants are need-based and do not need to be repaid.
  • The deadline for index tuition applications is February 15. (Applications received after the deadline will be processed if funds are available.)
  • No index tuition covers the full cost of tuition at Greenfield School.
  • Greenfield School's index tuition policy requires a signed copy of the family's current year Federal Tax Return (1040) to be submitted, along with the application, to FAST. Families are encouraged to file their tax returns by mid-February. 
  • Applications for index tuition must be submitted annually.
  • Greenfield School's index tuition program is administered in the strictest of confidence. We request that recipients and their families keep their grant information confidential as well.
  • Index tuition grants will NOT be finalized until all appropriate forms have been received as part of your FAST application.  In addition to these documents, your student's enrollment application must be processed, deposit paid and student is enrolled.
  • While first consideration will be given to applications received by February 15th, applications received after February 15th will be reviewed on a rolling basis depending on availability of funds.
 
 
ALL financial information that families provide will be held in strict confidence and WILL NOT be shared with anyone outside of the Greenfield School Financial Grant Committee.

Index Tuition ProgramFAST

The Index Tuition program is available for students in kindergarten through grade twelve at Greenfield School.  It serves as a means of making the School accessible to those families whose children, though meeting all of the requirements for admission, are not in a position to meet tuition expenses without financial assistance.  All index tuition amounts are considered confidential between the Business Office and the family.  All students applying for an index tuition grant must be accepted and enrolled at Greenfield School prior to receipt of the award.

Index Tuition Application Process

Greenfield School works with a third-party organization Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), which evaluates a student's eligibility for an index tuition grant through the process of completing an online application.  While FAST recommends an amount each family can pay toward tuition, the school's Finance Committee makes the final determination regarding award amounts.

Index Tuition Information

  • Index tuition grants are based solely on need.  Excellence in all activities is strongly encouraged for all Greenfield students, although this does influence or contribute to the award amount determined.
  • No grants are ever awarded for athletic participation.
  • Index tuition can range from $500 up to a maximum of half the cost of tuition for each student.
  • Families also have the opportunity to participate in the GSTrip (gift card rewards program) in order to further reduce tuition costs.
  • Families must apply for index tuition each year.
  • Index tuition is confidential, non-transferrable, and provided gratis to the recipient.
  • Any questions concerning index tuition should be directed to the Business Manager.
