Financial Aid

Culver Academies understands the financial commitment of an independent school education and focuses on maximizing our resources to provide opportunities to those families who qualify or warrant assistance. Culver offers need based financial aid assistance as well as non-need based awards. Need based aid depends solely on a family's financial profile and is independent from the admissions process. Non-need merit based awards are awarded based on the strength of the candidate and can range from small amounts to full awards. See Scholarships for more information on our Merit  Scholarship Programs.

Currently Culver provides need based financial aid to roughly one third of its students, with an additional 16% of our students receiving non-need, merit based awards. In total, almost 48% of our families are receiving financial assistance; a significantly higher proportion than the average support provided by many of our peer schools.

 Financial Aid Deadline for full consideration - January 15, 2015
