We recognize that the cost of an independent school education is significant and that many families will make sacrifices to have their child attend Pomfret School. Therefore, we make every effort, within the parameters of school resources, to assist admitted families with the commitments involved in financing Pomfret’s tuition. The assistance comes in the form of flexible payment plans or parent loans.
In addition, Pomfret offers need-based financial aid, which is determined by a family’s demonstrated financial need and the merit of the applicant (which) is determined by the Admissions Committee. In order to objectively assess a family’s demonstrated financial need, Pomfret, as do most independent schools, subscribes to the School and Student Services (SSS) administered by NAIS to process financial aid applications. Pomfret School's subscriber code number is 5842. Instructions on how to apply for financial aid are available on the SSS website
Funding for our need-based financial aid program is supported through the generous contributions of our alumni. However, despite this level of support, requests for financial aid typically exceed available funds, and awards are made to only a percentage of accepted students. You should be aware that every year there are applicants who are accepted to Pomfret who qualify for but do not receive financial aid.
