The majority of private schools offer scholarships to a number of their students. Scholarships are awarded for a variety of reasons, including academic achievement and financial need. They can also take the form of a sibling discount. As you consider schools for your child, and when cost is a concern to you, always ask about the school's scholarship program. Although the financial aid application may seem onerous, take the time to fill it out and let the school decide if you are eligible.
