Tuition and Financial Aid
Tuition and Fees for the 2016-2017 Academic Year
|Grade||Tuition/Fees||Modified Tuition/Fees*||Laptop Rental Fee**|
*Modified Tuition/Fees: Each student is given a $200.00 credit on tuition if the contract is returned by the deadline established by the school.
**Laptop Rental Fee (Grades 6-10): This required fee includes a 13” MacBook Air with iWorks, MS Office Suite, and Airwatch along with a protective case. The fee also covers insurance and onsite technical support for the device. This annual fee insures that students are using current devices that will be upgraded every three years.
Laptop Rental Fee (Grades 11-12): Students in grades 11-12 have the option, but are not required, to participate. All students in these grades are expected, however, to have a laptop of their choice.
Financial aid programs are vital to a diverse student body. Brookwood School is proud of its financial aid program and encourages families needing financial assistance to apply. Students receiving assistance are never singled out for special requirements, but are expected to make positive contributions of attitude and effort in order to justify their grants. All financial aid matters are strictly confidential and handled exclusively by the Financial Aid Committee.
Families interested in applying for financial aid should inform the Business Manager and a financial aid application must be completed online before any consideration for assistance is given. Financial aid is limited and will be prioritized by those who submit their applications by the April 1st deadline. Need is assessed annually, so a new application must be submitted each year and families must demonstrate continued financial need in order to qualify.
All awarded financial aid is generated from donor support, and is not taken from tuition funds paid by other families. Brookwood also receives education tax credit dollars, through the Georgia GOAL program from individuals and businesses, which are also used for financial aid awards. GOAL funding is earmarked for Brookwood School and has additional eligibility requirements.
Every family with students attending Brookwood pays something in terms of tuition and expenses, and financial aid awards are not scholarships. We seek students who demonstrate ability and interest in a broad and stimulating educational environment; no student is recruited or supported simply for one specific skill. We work to retain and recruit students with high ideals, intellectual curiosity, academic ability, and the potential for growth.
While our financial aid programs allow us to remain prepared to increase the size of the student body in response to the needs of the community, we will only do so to the extent that we can continue to maintain the culture and standards the define the values of Brookwood School.
