Tuition and Financial Aid

In an effort to make the Darrow educational experience affordable to as many families as possible, we offer Variable Tuition (see chart below). Variable Tuition allows Darrow to match the annual cost of education with a family's financial ability. More than 40% of our families take advantage of this program, paying tuition that is scaled to their resources.

We also offer payment plans through SMART Tuition. Any family who is not paying a one-time payment, must register with SMART Tuition.

Darrow's financial assistance is directed toward qualified students based upon applicants' financial needs and the School’s available funds. We work with the School and Student Service by NAIS in vetting applications and offer $1.8 million in support.

What creativity means at Darrow

It means connecting imagination to action. It means learning the technical aspects of creative expression. And it means taking risks and taking responsibility. Darrow School’s modern, dedicated facilities for visual and performing arts enable students to develop their creative potential in many disciplines. Traditional areas of study are taught through an active curriculum that emphasizes experimentation, discussion, project development, and interaction with the environment.
