All financial information provided to Bertschi School is completely confidential.
Financial aid awards are based on a family’s ability to meet the cost of an education at Bertschi. To determine the most fair and equitable estimate of a family’s need, Bertschi utilizes Clarity, an organization that does an independent assessment of financial need. In addition, parents are asked to provide an explanation of their financial situation and relevant documents (tax returns, wage statements, etc.). The Clarity system collects all data through a web-based, secure process.
The Financial Aid Committee includes the Head of School, the Chief Financial Officer, and the Director of Enrollment Management who meet to make decision about each family's award, taking all information available into account.
The admission committee reviews applicant files with a primary goal in mind: to identify those students who will benefit the most from an education at Bertschi, and make a positive contribution to the life of the school. The committee does not have access to financial information or aid applications.
Each family's situation is unique, and the Clarity system considers more than just your income. Here's an ballpark estimate of awards:

Need-based financial aid is not a loan and does not need to be repaid.
