Who Gets Financial Aid

Families who qualify for financial aid often find that Groton is their most affordable option.

To a family, the amount of financial aid that a school provides is less important than the amount they must contribute toward tuition. The charts on this page shed light on the generosity of Groton’s financial aid program as well as the school’s commitment to make the school accessible to families, of neither high nor low income, who sometimes assume they will not qualify for aid.

One chart lists the number of families in different income brackets and what they were asked to contribute to their child’s education at Groton this year. The pie chart shows how many students are receiving aid in different income brackets.

Please remember that while income is the primary driver in assessing a family’s contribution, we also consider assets, tuition expenses at other schools, the size of a family, debts, and other factors.
Groton School is a diverse and intimate community devoted to inspiring lives of character, learning, leadership, and service.
Groton School is recognized as one of America's top boarding schools. It prepares students in grades 8-12 for the "active work of life."
