Financial Aid and Scholarship Program

The Girls’ Middle School strives to be an inclusive and welcoming community. An integral part of the mission of the school is to develop a student body from diverse backgrounds, including families from all income levels. To achieve this goal, we offer two types of tuition assistance: Financial Aid and the GMS Scholarship Program. 
 
Financial Aid is a need-based assistance program funded through the school’s operating budget to provide tuition assistance to families who need help covering a portion of the tuition. All families receiving financial aid must qualify on a yearly basis through the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) School Services for Financial Aid process. 
 
GMS Scholarship Program supports high-achieving girls often coming from under-performing elementary schools. These students often represent the first generation to be college-bound in their families. The Scholarship Program provides complete tuition assistance: tuition, field trips and travel, uniforms, graduation, transportation, tutoring as needed, and lunch. The program is funded through the generosity of our GMS parents, alumnae and members of the community.
