Affording Bancroft

A Bancroft education is a powerful and life-changing investment in your child’s future.

When you look at the tuition numbers, don’t make the mistake of assuming that Bancroft is out of reach for your family. Bancroft is a diverse and inclusive community of families from a variety of backgrounds. If your child is motivated and ready to engage fully in the exceptional academic, artistic, athletic, and service opportunities Bancroft has to offer — and if you are ready to invest in a deep partnership to prepare your child for leadership in college and the world beyond — we encourage you to inquire. 

There are many ways to afford a Bancroft education, including financial aid and scholarships, and we are here to help every qualified applicant find their way.
