Affording Lawrence

The typical family profile at Lawrence School is unlike that of most other private or parochial schools.

We understand that many of our families never imagined their child would require an independent school education, and therefore require financial assistance to even consider this option. While we do not offer 100 percent full-ride scholarships through our internal financial aid process, we do offer assistance to the majority of families that apply.

At Lawrence, we believe the ability for students to receive the individualized education they need should not be predicated on their parents' financial ability to pay a full tuition.

As such, financial support is essential to helping us continue to work towards the vision of Lawrence School, that one day all students who learn differently will have the opportunity, encouragement and resources to fulfill their potential and benefit society. Learn More
