The Tuition Gap
Every effort is made to keep Connelly's tuition within a reasonable and feasible range. As a result, the annual tuition is approximately $1600 less than the actual cost of educating each student. During Connelly's Annual Giving Program, each family is asked to make a tax-deductible contribution of any denomination in order to help offset this "tuition gap," which, in essence, provides each Connelly family with a type of financial aid.

Tuition Assistance 
Cornelia Connelly School is committed to providing tuition assistance for college-bound high school students who satisfy admissions criteria, but may be discouraged from applying due to financial need. Approximately 20% of Connelly's students receive tuition assistance.

Families are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance if, after reviewing all financial resources and assessing how much they can afford to contribute to their daughter's education, they determine they are unable to afford Connelly's entire tuition cost. Tuition assistance awards are strictly need-based and do not require repayment. All applications for tuition assistance are initially processed by FACTS. 

Tuition Assistance Application Instructions 
Families must reapply for tuition assistance each year and financial awards are not guaranteed.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment conducts the financial need analysis for Cornelia Connelly School.
