Financing a Poly education
Polytechnic School strives to enroll students with strong academic potential and intellectual curiosity who will bring a wide variety of talents, skills, interests, and backgrounds to the school community. Since its founding in 1907, the school has been committed to maintaining a financial aid program to support its enrollment objectives and to make a Poly education accessible to a wide range of students.
At Poly, financial aid is a confidential and thoughtful process. Financial aid is awarded across all grade levels representing 20 to 25 percent of the student body and is designed to provide recipients access to the full Poly experience. To that end, Poly’s tuition rates already reflect most fees, and a financial aid grant may include certain other costs of attending school, such as books and Advanced Placement exams. Supporting current students is a priority, and financial aid decisions are made each year based upon demonstrated need, within the school’s overall budget.
Admission committees review applications without knowledge of financial aid requests, and a separate committee determines financial aid. Final offers of admission consider many factors to achieve overall enrollment goals, including the school’s budgetary considerations.
