100% Need-Blind Admission

Understanding Need-Blind AdmissionHeidi Jamieson, Director of Finanical Aid

“We’re one of the few independent schools in the country to admit students regardless of financial need; the official term for this is “need-blind admission.” We meet 100 percent of each student’s demonstrated financial need with scholarship grants. This means no loans and no debt.”
