Tuition and Affordability

We realize a Lawrenceville School education requires sustained commitment from our families — and we're confident that it yields a lifetime of benefits. From our world-class faculty to our focus on House, Harkness, and heart, Lawrenceville builds a foundation that will launch every student on their path.

Lawrenceville's financial stability depends on the interest of current families and generous donors and our job at the School is to attract both. We are proud of where our School stands today and we are grateful for the tremendous support we currently receive.

At The Lawrenceville School, we value diversity in all forms. Discovery and appreciation of new perspectives — a key aspect of Harkness learning — makes us stronger as a community. We are committed to making a Lawrenceville School education accessible to those who seek to join and contribute to our community.



Scholarship Aid

Our scholarship aid program extends beyond tuition, room, and board, providing opportunities to fully engage in the Lawrenceville experience. This includes a Harkness travel program, on-campus activities, and more. Approximately one third of our students receive need-based financial aid.
A family's eligibility for aid is determined through careful analysis of information provided on the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and through submission of a family's current, complete, federal tax return. This analysis identifies the dollar amount of a family's discretionary income that is available for tuition and fees.
We strongly encourage families to apply for aid during the application process if they believe that, at any time during their child’s tenure at Lawrenceville, they will need financial aid. It is unlikely that a family's aid eligibility will change unless there is a significant change in their circumstances such as job loss, additional tuition expenses for other children, or the death of a parent.
