Affording Kinkaid

Created by founder Margaret Kinkaid, the financial aid program is a cornerstone of her vision. Today, Kinkaid offers a significant financial aid budget to assist capable, talented and deserving students who would be unable to attend without financial assistance. Our financial aid program is available to new and re-enrolling families with students in all grades, from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Each application for financial aid is reviewed in detail with the upmost confidentiality by the Financial Aid Committee.

Our financial aid program is comprised of two parts: tuition grants and incidental support. Both aspects are structured to support students and their full participation in the life of the School.

All families interested in requesting financial aid are encouraged to apply to see if they qualify for assistance.


Falcon Family Fund

To support Kinkaid families who are experiencing financial challenges as a result of COVID- 19 the School is pleased to announce two major steps. 

1.     An emergency assistance fund, the Falcon Family Fund, has been created to provide tuition relief to our families, some of whom may need support now for the first time.  The Falcon Family Fund is in addition to our sizable need-based financial aid budget. 

2.     The finance fee has been reduced from 5% to 2.5% of tuition to provide immediate financial savings for those who prefer to pay tuition via installments.

For information on applying for support through the Falcon Family Fund, please contact Meredith Van Ryder, Coordinator of Financial Aid, at  If you would like to change your tuition payment plan to an installment plan, please contact Kris Marron at before June 5.
