Affording Pine Cobble
Pine Cobble values a socioeconomically diverse student body – something we achieve through robust need-based financial aid grants and tuition forgiveness. In any given year, at least one-third of our students, often more, receive tuition assistance in some way. Our financial aid grants are need-based, do not need to be repaid, and vary from several hundred dollars to significantly more.
In addition, we offer a small number of both full and partial scholarships. Some of these are need-based, and others are merit-based; a few will follow a child through all his years at Pine Cobble. You can learn more about those here.
A Pine Cobble education is a powerful investment – one that pays dividends over a child’s lifetime. Still, we know that no one commits to an independent school lightly. That’s why we work diligently to balance affordability and lifelong value. Again and again, families tell us that Pine Cobble wasn’t just worth it — it was life-changing for their child.

Financial Aid Process:
Financial aid is available for students in Kindergarten through ninth grade who could not otherwise afford tuition. Although all admission decisions are made independently of financial aid decisions, families should apply for aid online at: www.sssbynais.org/parents as early as possible, and submit their most recent tax return. Returning families’ requests are processed first, then new families are considered on a first come, first served basis. All decisions are based on need, which is assessed annually.
