Affording Evergreen School

An Evergreen education enables children to grow into confident, capable and self-assured indivuduals. Affordability and accesiibility is a top priority of the Evergreen Mission. We are proud of our teacher-student ratio, the close connections between teachers and the students and our socioeconomic diversity. 

At Evergreen School, we strongly promote the inclusion of students from various economic backgrounds. We encourage families to contact Kara Stegeman, Director of Admissions to discuss options for affording an Evergreen education including our financial aid program, and participation in the Maryland Child Care Scholarship Program and Child Care Aware.

Financial Aid

Evergreen is committed to being a diverse community and serving children from a broad range of socio-economic backgrounds. Our Financial Aid program helps enroll and re-enroll qualified students whose families cannot pay full tuition costs.  We understand that affording the tuition at Evergreen requires real sacrifice on the part of parents. Financial aid awards are based on demonstrated need.  There is no specific income level for families to qualify for aid. Financial need takes many factors into consideration including income, investments, debt, household size and other considerations. 

Needs-based assessments are conducted through School and Student Services (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools. Our Financial Aid Committee reviews all aid applications and makes financial awards as appropriate. All financial information is strictly confidential.

Financial Aid Application Process

 

Evergreen School has partnered with School and Student Services (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools for our financial aid application process and assessment. Unfortunately, there is always a greater demand for aid than there are resources so it is important to submit the information required by the deadlines given. 

Both parents must complete the steps if they are from different households. Please note that the aid is only applied to the tuition.
