Education is an investment - by us and by you.

Providing access to Ravenscroft, regardless of financial means, is a priority for us. Enrolling talented, bright and dynamic students from a variety of experiences and backgrounds is core to Ravenscroft’s mission, and is fundamental to our beliefs and educational curriculum, Lead From Here.

We realize that affording an independent school education may be out of reach for some families.  For that reason, we grant more than $3M in aid each year so qualified students can attend and contribute to our school community.

Ravenscroft offers merit-based scholarships, need-based financial aid and flexible payment plans to make the investment in an independent school education manageable.

We encourage all families considering a Ravenscroft education to learn more about our financial aid process.

*A "new family" is one that does not have a child currently enrolled at Ravenscroft. The New Family Capital Fee is paid when a family enrolls their child(ren) and is a one-time only fee, independent of the number of children enrolled. The New Family Capital Fee should not be confused with the Enrollment Deposit, which is applied toward the total annual tuition. The New Family Capital Fee covers maintenance and improvement of our facilities, including work such as painting, landscaping, carpet replacement, and classroom, playground, and field repairs. As noted above, Ravenscroft alumni families are exempt from the New Family Capital Fee.
