Tuition and Fees

Indexed Tuition Range
 
The Board of Trustees for Greenfield School 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.
 
 
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. While FAST recommends an amount each family can pay toward tuition, the school's Finance Committee makes the final determination regarding award amounts.
 
All students applying for an index tuition grant must be accepted and enrolled at Greenfield School prior to receipt of the award.

How does it work?
  • When submitting your Student Application for admission, please be sure to check the box indicating your intention to apply for indexed tuition (students applying for admission and indexed tuition will also be automatically reviewed for any applicable scholarships.)
  • To determine your place on the tuition range, please complete the Financial Grant Application found on the FAST website 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 for returning families and March 17 for new families. (Applications received after the deadline will be processed if funds are available.)
  • No index tuition covers the full cost of tuition at Greenfield School. Index tuition can range from $500 up to a maximum of half the cost of tuition for each student.
  • 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 planning on applying for indexed tuition 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.

Tuition Management Plan
 
Every year, thousands of students must withdraw from private or independent schools. When enrolling at Greenfield School your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition as stated in the school’s enrollment contract. The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.
 
If your son or daughter withdraws, the Tuition Management Plan will credit benefits (subject to the terms of the policy and the amount covered) to your son or daughter’s account, which provides substantial assistance in meeting your financial obligation.
