Financial Aid

It's our goal to make a Crossroads education affordable to as many families as possible. That's why Crossroads allocates over $9 million in financial aid to at least 1 in 4 of our students, representing a broad spectrum of financial circumstances. Allocations range from $1,000 to the full cost of tuition, with our average financial aid award covering 72% of tuition. Families who receive financial aid can pay their tuition balance over 10 payments. Many non-tuition related expenses (including transportation, books, laptops, etc.) can be covered with financial aid awards.
Crossroads strives to maintain a socio-economically diverse student body and to ensure that the process of allocating aid is fair and equitable. If you have any questions about the financial aid application process or program, please feel free to contact the Office of Admission and Financial Aid. We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Important Financial Aid Guidelines

    1. All financial aid applicant families must complete all application steps on time to be fully considered for financial aid awards should they be offered admission to Crossroads. Incomplete financial aid applications cannot be considered.
    2. If you are applying for multiple children, you need to list all children on the PFS, but only submit one PFS per household.
    3. In the case of divorced or separated parents, both biological parents or appropriate guardians should contribute to the cost of educating their child. Non-custodial parents who have a relationship with their child are required to participate in the financial aid application process by submitting all required materials.

Crossroads School offers open enrollment based on application and admits all students to the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The School does not discriminate on the basis of color, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, or religion or creed, in the administration of its educational policies, financial aid programs, or athletic and other school-administered programs. Crossroads seeks students with a range and depth of interests and talents. In addition, the school seeks to provide classes which balance boy/girl ratios, ethnic and socio-economic diversity, and heterogeneity in skills.
