Tuition & Financial Aid

Financial Assistance at Lesley Ellis School

Lesley Ellis School strives to provide high-quality education that is affordable for all students. Recognizing that the cost of Lesley Ellis may exceed the financial capabilities of some families, a financial assistance fund is available each year. Lesley Ellis has a commitment to continue financial assistance for returning students whose families remain within the eligibility guidelines. 

Lesley Ellis is a member of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), an organization that assists schools in making equitable awards to families who demonstrate financial need. The amount of a financial assistance award is based on a family’s need as determined, in large part, by SSS, and on the availability of funds at Lesley Ellis School. The Financial Aid Committee reviews all requests and supporting documentation. Families who have submitted all forms by February 15 will be notified in mid-March.
