Burke's Financial Aid program reflects the school’s mission for socio-economic diversity by offering aid to families who otherwise would not be able to attend Burke. Our financial aid also allows students to participate in all school-sponsored academic, athletic and social activities, thus ensuring that every activity is open to every student.
Parents of applicants who are interested in financial aid should check the appropriate box on their Application for Admission. In addition, all Burke Financial Aid applications should complete the following:
1. The TADS Application.
We use a third party vendor called TADS to help us process financial aid applications. Both parents should also submit copies of their 2018 W2 and 1040 forms. TADS provides information on their website about completing the TADS application.
Financial aid grants are not connected to admissions decisions and are based solely on financial need and availability of funds. Currently, 30% of families receive financial assistance from the School. Please note that most financial aid dollars are awarded in the first round of admission.
