Tuition and Financial Aid

Financial Aid FAQs



We work to remain accessible to everyone through our need-based financial aid program, and closely consider each family’s unique financial situation throughout the financial aid process.



We invest more than 20 percent of tuition revenues into need-based awards, along with endowed funds which support all Putney students.



First time and returning families and students should apply for financial aid through School & Student Services (SSS). We use this data as a starting point to help determine the reasonable contribution each family can make toward their child’s education.
