Financial Aid

Financial Aid Program

Lincoln School seeks to enroll a diverse and talented student body from Nursery–Grade 12 *, and Lincoln’s strong commitment to its financial aid program supports this mission. Lincoln believes that qualified students should have the opportunity to attend an independent school regardless of their family's financial situation.

*Please note that no financial assistance is available for the Little School.

Typically, more families apply for financial assistance than can be funded in the first round of admission decisions. In the event that funds become available later, some applicants on the waitlist might then become eligible for financial aid assistance.

Applying for Financial Aid

SSS (School & Student Services), an independent organization partnered with NAIS (the National Association of Independent Schools), processes Lincoln’s financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you provide in the online application, SSS estimates the amount your family can contribute to educational expenses and shares this with the school to help make fair and objective financial aid decisions. To begin your financial aid application, follow the steps outlined below.
