Affording a Pingree Education

Pingree believes that access to educational excellence should be available to all qualified students, regardless of financial means. Pingree offers need-based financial aid in hopes that no student will be discouraged from applying due to financial need. Forty percent of Pingree's student body receive tuition assistance.

The 2023–2024 tuition is $56,250. This comprehensive fee includes lunch. Additional fees for books and other academic materials can be estimated at $750. A limited fund is reserved for Pingree students who may need financial support to assist with required additional expenses related to their educational experience.


Applying for Financial Aid

The deadline for completing the financial aid application including relevant supplemental documents is January 1 for returning families and January 15 for new families.

Pingree School financial aid is designed to make a Pingree education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Pingree is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.
