Financial Aid

Since its founding in 1971, The Studio School has been deeply committed to a heterogeneous, inclusive and diverse community. We consider a broad range of factors in determining Financial Aid Awards for applicants, not limited to financial need, merit, and availability of funds. It is the culture of The Studio School for all parents to contribute towards tuition.

Prospective families who wish to apply for financial aid pay the reduced application fee of $25.00, and complete a Financial Aid Application through TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services).

Each year, enrolled families who have previously received a Financial Aid Award re-apply online through TADS to determine eligibility for the following year. At that time, The Financial Aid Committee will take into consideration a broad range of factors, including financial assets, parent participation and involvement in the community, and a student’s progress.


Thirty-five percent of our students receive financial aid through our Virginia O’Hanlon Scholarship Fund.


If you have any questions about your financial aid application, you may contact TADS from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., Monday-Friday, at (800) 884-8237. Helpful information and answers to your questions can be found on their website: We also welcome you to contact our Director of Admissions, Shera Silver, for guidance:
