Tuition & Financial Aid
Canterbury's tuition for the 2016-17 academic year is $43,150 for day students and $56,050 for boarding students.
We know paying for an independent school education is a significant commitment for prospective families. Canterbury is committed to enrolling qualified candidates from all socioeconomic backgrounds and accordingly offers a strong financial aid program based on each family’s demonstrated need.
Financial Aid applications will not affect admission decisions; they are considered separately. Financial aid is awarded only to students who have completed the Admission Office application process and have been officially accepted.
Applying for Financial Aid
1. Complete the Forms
Complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and submit online to School and Student Services (SSS) at http://sssbynais.org by January 31. Request that Canterbury School receive the report by indicating the school code, 2050, in the appropriate box. In cases of divorce or separation, both natural parents must file applications.
2. Upload or Mail the Documentation
Submit a copy of the family's 2015 federal income tax return, including all W2's and schedules, directly to SSS by January 31. If a student has filed a return, include a copy of his/her return as well. Also please submit a copy of all 2016 W2's by January 31. The 2016 federal income tax return must be submitted as soon as it is complete or by April 15 at the latest. This paperwork can be submitted online by directly uploading the documents to the SSS website or mailed directly to the address listed below:

3. Receiving Confirmation
SSS will make a Report of Family Contribution available to Canterbury online within one to two days of receiving a family's PFS.
4. Completing the Process
A financial aid application file is considered complete when the Admission Office has received both the Parents' Financial Statement and all supporting documentation. A request that is filed late may affect the family's chance of receiving aid for the coming year.
