Financial Aid & Accessibility
"Thank you so much for helping me experience Loomis Chaffee. I believe in life-changing decisions, and for me, coming here has been the most significant one so far. I also believe in life-changing gifts, and I’ve added this scholarship to the list of gifts I’ve received in my 16 years. Thank you again for today, for tomorrow, and for every day afterwards."

The Loomis Chaffee School is committed to enrolling the most outstanding applicants and creating the best possible educational opportunities for them, regardless of their ability to pay. Loomis Chaffee was founded as an “opportunity school” and, through the financial aid program, the school continues to provide access to one of the nation’s leading boarding schools for students from a range of backgrounds — racial, ethnic, geographic and socio-economic.

We strongly encourage any family who feels they need financial assistance to apply for financial aid. This year Loomis Chaffee allocated $7.9 million to one-third of our student body. Financial aid is intended to make the cost of attending Loomis Chaffee affordable. To that end, financial aid grants range from $1,000 up to the full cost of tuition, with the average grant covering 75 percent of tuition.
The school also hosts a financial aid lending library for textbooks and other required reading, which helps to reduce the cost of book purchases for all students on financial aid.
