General Questions

List of 8 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. 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 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 books, computers, athletic costs, etc.). $480,000 of the 2019-20 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.
