Tuition Assistance

Gulf Stream School endeavors to make available need-based financial aid to qualified students applying for Grades 1-8. Financial aid allows deserving students an opportunity for an independent school education while enabling the School to attract families and students with varied backgrounds and interests.

Tuition Assistance Reviews

The Board of Trustees allocates a percentage of annual tuition revenue plus the amount determined yearly from the Endowment Spending Rule to fund the Financial Aid budget.

Financial aid decisions are made independently from admissions decisions and in no way affect a candidate's chances for admission. Every effort is made to ensure the fair, equitable, and proper distribution of financial aid to families demonstrating need.

The Board of Trustees funds additional expenses of financial aid students (books, fees, and field trips) through the Helping Children Grow Fund and through requests made by the Head of School. Should additional financial aid funds be required to meet demonstrated need beyond the budgeted amount, the Head of School will request such funds from the Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees.

Please note that all financial aid requests, including financial information and award amounts, are strictly confidential. Families are expected to keep the amount of their awards confidential as well.
