Financial Aid

Generous donations from individuals and foundations allow Lawrence School to provide a limited amount of financial assistance to families with financial need.

All financial aid awards are based on a family's demonstrated financial need. In determining the extent of a student's need, consideration is given to both the amount of support that may be expected from all family resources, as well as factors that affect a family's financial strength, such as investment savings and other assets, number of dependents, debt and other educational responsibilities.

Applicants interested in financial aid are strongly encouraged to complete their financial aid application by December 31, for the following school year.


To help us objectively assess what a family is able to contribute toward education expenses, we use FACTS Management as a confidential third party for financial aid application processing. The FACTS analysis of a family's estimated contribution is a critical component of our financial aid decision.

However, it is just a start. Our final financial aid award decision is made using the FACTS Management program figures as well as our own additional review; taking into consideration our total financial aid budget, our school's policies and procedures, and the needs of our entire applicant pool.

A Financial Aid Committee reviews all information and determines financial aid award offers. This review and consideration is completely separate from the admission review and acceptance process. The Financial Aid Committee will not receive financial aid request information to review until a student has been accepted for enrollment at Lawrence School by the Admissions Office.
