General Questions

List of 9 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. What is financial aid?

    Greenhill offers financial aid in the form of tuition grants. A tuition grant is money applied toward the tuition for the upcoming school year and does not need to be repaid.
  • Q. Does Greenhill offer merit or athletic scholarships?

    Financial aid decisions are based solely on a family’s demonstrated need. In order to keep our process fair, equitable, and need-based, we do not offer any type of merit, including athletic, scholarships.
  • Q. Does applying for financial aid factor into the admission decision-making process?

    Greenhill’s admission process is need-blind and students’ need for financial assistance is not considered as a factor by the admission committee.
  • Q. Will I qualify for a tuition grant?

    Any family may apply for assistance. Ability to pay is based on combined salaries, business cash flow, and assets, while considering the number of children in tuition-required schools and any unusual expenses. The Family Income Chart (see below) gives an idea of past awards based on average family income levels, but should not be used to assume a specific award will be granted.

  • Q. Who can apply for financial aid?

    Families who have students entering prekindergarten through grade 12 may apply.
  • Q. Is there help for the extra costs associated with attending a private school?

    Yes, Greenhill devotes a part of its financial aid budget to assist families who demonstrate a financial need for supplemental support (including but not limited to approved fine art and athletic costs). $550,000 of the 2024-25 budget is earmarked to cover these costs.
  • Q. Do I have to reapply every year?

    Because a family’s financial situation may change from year to year, the committee requires all current financial aid recipients to reapply each year. Awards may be adjusted if a family’s financial circumstances change significantly.
  • Q. Where can I find additional information?

    Please visit Greenhill’s financial aid webpage or the NAIS website also provides helpful tips and articles on their website.
  • Q. Whom do I contact if I have more questions?

    Please contact Amy deBorst, Director of Financial Aid, at (972) 628-5522.
