A Program of Schools for Children

Tuition Assistance

Lesley Ellis School is committed to providing a high-quality education that is accessible to all students. Recognizing that the cost of a Lesley Ellis education may exceed the financial capabilities of some families, a financial assistance fund is available each year to help offset tuition costs for qualifying families. Lesley Ellis commits to continuing financial assistance for returning students whose families remain within the eligibility guidelines.

Lesley Ellis is a member of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), an organization that assists schools in making equitable awards to families who demonstrate financial need. The amount of a tuition assistance award is based on a family’s need as determined, in large part, by SSS, as well as on the availability of funds at Lesley Ellis School. The Tuition Assistance Committee reviews all requests and supporting documentation. Families who have submitted all forms by February 15 will be notified in mid-March of the committee’s determination.
