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.

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. Uploaded copies of personal tax returns and business taxes, if applicable, are also required.
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, 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.
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.
Some non-tuition expenses are covered or reduced. Click here for a list of policies.
We recommend families apply for financial aid during the admissions process. If you wait to see if your child is accepted, funds will already be allocated to other families. The admissions application fee of $135 is waived for families applying for financial aid.
Does financial aid cover school fees and other expenses?
Many non-tuition expenses are covered for families who qualify, such as: Laptops, trips, bus transportation, prom, athletics, and supplies. Click here for details.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I know if I would qualify for aid?
First, a family should look at all personal avenues for meeting costs. If all available resources from both parents' full-time employment are still not enough to meet tuition costs, then the family may qualify for aid. Exceptions may be made if one parent cannot work due to disability or leaving non-school age children at home.
What happens if I cannot meet the financial aid deadlines (e.g. tax return extensions, non-cooperation from one parent)?
We start making grants for completed files on February 21, the day all taxes are due. We continue until funds run out so you are best served by meeting the due date. We do understand, however, that sometimes factors are beyond the family’s control, and in that case please notify the financial aid office at email@example.com of your time frame.
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.
It is not recommended that a family enroll in the school with an intent to apply for aid at a later date. We budget by grade level, and if you wait until after enrollment, funds will already be allocated to other families.
Is there a minimum G.P.A. required to maintain a student’s grant?
No. The school’s academic standards apply to all of our students equally. The financial aid program is meant to be the great equalizer—all students on campus have the same opportunity to succeed and to learn from their mistakes.
Is all information confidential?
Yes, students receiving aid are only known by the financial aid and business offices, so no teachers or administrators are ever aware of who receives aid nor are they asked for academic reports on any student.
Are there fee waivers for the PFS?
If the family qualifies according to income guidelines, they will not be charged. Otherwise the application fee is approximately $55.
What should I do if I have not received my W2 before the January PFS deadline?
You should estimate. Amounts are corrected by the financial aid office after your tax information is received. The top priority is to have your child’s PFS in the SSS system before January 11 in order to be considered for the coming year.
What do I need handy to fill out the PFS online application?
It may help to look over the workbooks below for an overview before you fill out the PFS online. Most of your answers will be estimates. The financial aid office will make adjustments after taxes are uploaded.
