Tuition Assistance 

The School's Board of Trustees seeks to provide access to a Dawson education to students who, because of their academic achievements and personal qualities, are qualified and mission-appropriate for admission.

Because many such children come from families that do not have the economic means to pay full tuition, and because the School values economic diversity within the student body, the Board of Trustees has established a tuition assistance program.

To be eligible for priority consideration, returning families must submit their initial tuition assistance applications by February 9, 2024, and upload supporting documentation by March 10, 2024.
