Financial Aid

Buckley offers financial aid based on demonstrated need beginning in Nursery. Requests for assistance do not affect admissions decisions or a current student's place in the school community. All financial information is held in the strictest confidence.

Buckley uses School and Student Services (SSS), provided by the National Association of Independent Schools, to process financial aid applications and help determine need. Based on the financial information you submit, SSS will report to us an estimated amount your family can contribute towards tuition. This helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions. Buckley's SSS code is 1942.

  • To Apply

    We recognize that an independent school education is both a powerful investment in your child’s future as well as a considerable financial commitment. The purpose of our financial aid program is to fill the gap between the actual cost of a year’s tuition and what a family can realistically afford to pay toward this cost. The Financial Aid Committee awards grants to families who demonstrate financial need as determined by the School & Student Service for Financial Aid needs analysis system (SSS).
    To begin your application for the 2021-22 school year, please note the following timeline:
