Financial Aid Program

Financial aid at Thayer Academy is entirely need-based: awards are made solely on the basis of a family's ability to pay. In 2021, Thayer Academy awarded $8 million in financial aid to 36.5% of our student body with the average grant totaling $30,952, allowing us to maintain a socioeconomically diverse student population that enriches the Thayer experience for all students. Thayer does not offer scholarships or merit awards for academic, artistic, or athletic ability.

Typically, more families apply for financial aid than the school can fund in the first round of admission decisions. In the event that funds become available later, some applicants on the waitlist might then become eligible for financial aid awards.
