Tuition & Financial Aid

Affording a Culver Education

In the world of boarding and secondary schools, Culver offers a tremendous amount of value compared to our peer institutions. We understand that a private school education requires a significant financial commitment from families. Thanks to our generous benefactors and supporters, we are able to offer resources to help make a Culver education financially feasible for qualifying families. We also offer a payment plan for families seeking additional flexibility.

Financial Aid Options

At Culver Academies, we offer a variety of financial support resources to help make a Culver education attainable for qualified families. We recognize that every family's financial picture looks different, and we are committed to providing a thorough review of every applicant's individual circumstances. It is Culver's expectation that families contribute to the cost of their child's education at the highest level they are able.

  • Culver offers both need-based assistance and merit-based awards. 
  • Need-based aid depends on a family's financial profile as determined through the financial aid application available through Clarity Application.
  • Distinguished Scholarships cover the cost of tuition, room and board, and some additional fees. 
  • For families seeking payment flexibility, our Business Office offers a 10-month payment plan. The plan allows tuition payments to be spread over 10 months (May through February) for a $100 annual fee.


“Overall, that experience at Culver was terrific. I learned how to be a leader. You worked with people from different parts of the world at Culver. I would say it was a great foundation for me to have discipline, to understand you had to work to get to the front and that is important to me in life.”Roger Penske Auto Racing Legend
