Affording Pingry

We support bright, promising students regardless of their financial circumstances.

A Pingry education makes an immediate impact and has lifelong value. We want that education to be accessible to families from a broad range of backgrounds. That’s why we offer a generous tuition assistance program to support students and families with financial need.

We recognize that a Pingry education is a significant investment and do not want tuition to be a barrier for entry. We believe that socio-economic diversity enriches our community and is critical to our mission to innovate, launch world-changers, and foster values like compassion, curiosity, and awareness of self and others.

We encourage our prospective families to apply for tuition assistance if they are concerned about affordability. We are excited to partner with you! 

2025-26 tuition assistance applications will OPEN IN AUGUST

Independent School should be affordable, and applying for aid should be easy: contact us with tuition assistance questions at any time.

I am very thankful to the donors and alumni whose generosity gave me and will continue to give others to come the opportunity to have not only a First-Class academic experience, but also an environment to excel in extracurricular activities! Go Big Blue!'

COMMUNITY VOICES

"Tuition assistance provided me with access to a life-changing education. As an adult, I still benefit from the lessons and values I gained at Pingry. Being able to attend a school like Pingry without a financial burden has positively impacted both my life and career."
 

Annelise Kinney, Class of 2015

COMMUNITY VOICES

"Tuition Assistance changed my life. Growing up, independent schools felt like an opportunity for other people, not me. This changed the moment I learned about the existence of tuition assistance programs. Suddenly, nothing was out of reach. And not only did I belong in this space, but I felt wanted and valued. I am proud of myself for exploring the options available to me, going for it, and ultimately taking full advantage of the opportunities that I earned. My individual journey was the impetus for a career in independent schools and serves as a constant reminder that with determination, access to resources, and the right support, we can surpass our own expectations. Because of my own experience, I feel honored to be part of an institution like Pingry that offers life-changing opportunities through its comprehensive Tuition Assistance program."
