Financial Assistance

Central to Urban School's mission is a commitment to socio-economic diversity among our students. Urban offers financial assistance based on both a family's need and the availability of funds. Families should not hesitate to complete the application process if you believe that you may qualify for tuition assistance. 

To provide access to a full range of opportunities at the school, Urban also supports non-tuition expenses based on the percentage of tuition assistance a student receives. These expenses include books, laptop fees, outdoor and global education trips, tutoring, food and snacks, school social events, athletic gear and any college-related expenses such as standardized tests.. 

Admissions decisions are made separately from financial assistance decisions. If accepted, details about your financial assistance package will accompany your letter of acceptance to Urban. If you have any questions about your award or would like to appeal, please reach out to the Admissions team.

Could my Family Qualify for Financial Assistance?

Income alone does not determine if a family might be eligible for financial assistance. As demonstrated below, a wide range of our community receives some form of assistance.

We understand that applying for assistance may be confusing and overwhelming. We are excited to get to know you and work together with you and your family throughout this process. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact the Urban Admissions Office by calling 415 593 9555 or email
