A Campbell Hall education is a powerful investment in your child’s future.
Supportive faculty, small class sizes, innovative and inclusive programs, and a priority on social, emotional and spiritual development are hallmarks of the exceptional CH learning experience.
At Campbell Hall, we understand the significant financial commitment our families make. We also understand that each family’s financial circumstances are unique. We are committed to making education affordable for all qualified admitted students and to helping each family navigate the financial aid process.
Families receiving financial aid at Campbell Hall represent a broad range of incomes and economic circumstances. The best way to start is to read the information below, then click on the online application (Parents' Financial Statement). If you would like more information, or have questions before you apply, please contact us to set up a financial aid counseling session.
Option I: Single payment of full year’s tuition due in June. Option II: Tuition divided into two payments due June and November. Option III: Ten monthly payments beginning June and ending in March. *A 4% service charge applies to monthly payments. The service charge is waived for families receiving a financial aid award.

K-12 Grade New Student Notifications | March 11, 2022 Financial aid decisions for new students entering grades K-12 sent along with admissions notification. Families must reply to their offer by March 18, 2022.
Financial Aid grants are awarded on the basis of parental financial need. Campbell Hall belongs to School & Student Services (SSS) by Community Brands which requires parents to complete a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) annually.
Eligibility for the 2022-23 academic year is determined on the basis of U.S. federal tax returns for the years 2019 and 2020. Personal and business tax returns (if applicable), and all accompanying schedules, are required in order to apply for financial aid.
In evaluating the amount of aid needed to meet tuition costs, the Financial Aid Committee takes into account the family’s other children (ages, schools they attend), additional dependents, all sources of income, assets, priority of spending, debts, and expenses.
The Financial Aid application process occurs at the same time as application for admissions. However, the decisions to accept and to award assistance are separate.
Families that would like to be considered for financial aid must apply for aid when they file their application for admission. Families with undisclosed financial need will be ineligible for future financial aid consideration. However, families that experience an unforeseen event will be considered, provided they can demonstrate a change in their financial circumstances.
In the case of divorced, separated, or never married parents, both parents must submit a separate Parents’ Financial Statements to School & Student Services (SSS). Both parents upload copies of their personal tax return to SSS. Neither parent has access to the others’ information.
If one parent has no contact with the family, the custodial parent should submit third-party verification explaining the situation, i.e. by clergy, school administrator, or other individual with knowledge of the situation.
Renewal grants are given priority. Then, consideration is given to those seeking aid for the first time.
Priority for Financial Aid to incoming students is given first to high school, then middle school, then to elementary school students. Due to the number of years potentially involved in meeting need, it is sometimes more difficult for the school to make awards in the lowest grade levels.
It should be understood that lifestyle choices that result in increased expenses or decreased income cannot be underwritten by the financial aid program at Campbell Hall.
Applications for financial aid are filed at the same time as the application for admission. You must have an active admissions application in order to be considered for a financial aid award. The admissions application fee of $150 is automatically waived for families applying for financial aid.
Does financial aid cover school fees and other expenses?
School fees in general are not covered by financial aid, however, the $2,500 new family fee is waived for those receiving financial aid. Additionally, many non-tuition expenses are subsidized for families receiving aid, such as: laptops, summer school, and bus transportation. Click here for details.
Families in grades 7-12 will be responsible for the cost of their annual textbook orders.
Are any forms required other than the PFS and taxes/W2?
Although Campbell Hall does not require supplementary forms, an explanation of any special circumstances is appreciated. You may either write in the comments section of the PFS, or send an email directly to the Campbell Hall Financial Aid Office at email@example.com.
How do I know if I would qualify for aid?
While there are no set income guidelines that determine who will qualify, most families making less than $350,000 per year will likely qualify for an award. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss your particular circumstances.
I am applying to more than one school for my child. Do I need to complete a separate financial aid application for each school?
The Financial Aid Application on SSS can be sent to any school that utilizes the SSS platform. You may need to complete additional applications for aid if you are applying to schools that use other systems.
Does Campbell Hall offer merit scholarships?
No, all grants are need-based. Campbell Hall does not offer academic, athletic, or other merit scholarships.
Could the request for aid negatively affect the chances of being accepted for admission?
Admissions committee members make their decisions independently. Then, if financial aid funds cannot cover all accepts, families could be denied aid or moved to the admissions wait pool.
Where does the money come from?
Funding is from the school’s operating budget, foundation grants, and major donors.
How is financial aid distributed?
Priority goes to older students since they need funds for a shorter period and are preparing for college. Consideration is sometimes given to present Campbell Hall families who have an emergency or other unforeseen circumstance that can be documented.
Is all information confidential?
Yes, students receiving aid are only known by the financial aid and business offices, so teachers or administrators are not aware of who receives aid.
Are there fee waivers for the PFS?
Fee waivers for the PFS application are issued by SSS and are based on strict income criteria determined by SSS. Most families do not qualify and should expect to pay the application fee of $55. If you do meet the criteria, the waiver will be automatically applied at the end of the application.
What do I need handy to fill out the PFS online application?
You will need your 2019 and 2020 income tax returns, all accompanying schedules, and W2 forms and/or business tax returns (if applicable). It may help to look over the workbooks below for an overview before you fill out the PFS online.
