Applying for Financial Aid

The Bridge School strives to remain accessible to all families while maintaining our commitment to a cooperative model.  In an effort to recognize and value each family’s time, talents and financial ability, we offer the following financial assistance.

Yeargin Scholarship

The Yeargin Scholarship Fund offers a limited number of scholarships for families with demonstrated financial need. Yeargin Scholarships are awarded for a maximum of 50% annual tuition for the elementary school program.  

Please complete The Bridge School Financial Aid Application and the online SSS Parent Financial Statement to apply.

Sibling Scholarship

We want to make attending the Bridge School affordable to families with multiple children.  Additional siblings enrolled concurrently in the Bridge School Elementary and Creative Enrichment programs are eligible for a reduction in tuition if they feel the full cost of tuition is a financial hardship. 

We ask those families for whom paying the full tuition for additional siblings is not a burden to forego this scholarship so that we may reserve funds for our need-based financial assistance.

Please complete The Bridge School Financial Application Form to apply (see above section).
