What is financial aid?

Financial aid is tuition assistance for families with demonstrated financial need. The financial aid committee considers several factors when determining financial need. Harpeth Hall calculates financial need based on prior year tax information, using our third party, School and Student Services (SSS), and institutional methodology. 

FACTORS CONSIDERED
Combined parent/guardian income
Assets and educational debt
Number of children in tuition-charging schools

DID YOU KNOW?
Demonstrated need is met with grants, not loans

3 PAYMENT PLAN OPTIONS

Does Harpeth Hall make admission decisions based on financial need?

No. The admission and financial aid programs at Harpeth Hall are distinct, need-blind application processes. Qualifying families receive a grant at the same time they receive their admission decision. The financial aid application process is confidential.

It is free to apply to Harpeth Hall. Financial aid application fee waivers are also available.

Funding Beyond Tuition

Additional assistance is available during the school year for families receiving financial aid to help with school-related expenses including textbooks, uniforms, and co-curricular activities.

The Adeline Fund was established anonymously in 2017 by Harpeth Hall parents in honor of their daughter to provide funding for girls who demonstrate financial need so that they may participate fully in the life of the school beyond the classroom.

The Olivia Fund was established anonymously in 2001 by a Harpeth Hall parent in honor of his young daughter, who was in her second year at the school. Its purpose is to help students and their families with expenses that are important to an inclusive school experience but are not covered in financial aid grants for tuition.
