A: Through its Financial Aid Program, Trevor Day School supports qualified Nursery-Grade 12 students and their families who are unable to pay the full tuition. Awards are granted after a family has completed the Financial Aid application process and has been deemed qualified. Financial Aid awards are based on a percentage of tuition, not a set dollar amount, therefore the amount a family pays each year is likely to increase annually in proportion to increases in tuition. The Financial Aid Program is need-based, which means Trevor does not offer academic, athletic, or merit-based scholarships of any kind. A Financial Aid award is a grant, not a loan, and does not have to be paid back.
