Financial Aid at Branson

We support students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and have offered a full range of grants to eligible families, from $100 to almost the full cost of tuition. Financial aid support extends to helping students with the costs of enrichment activities and school events (such as school-sponsored trips, concerts, plays, athletics) as well as other expenses.

Financial aid is granted on the basis of annual need for students, which is determined by a Financial Aid Committee each year. The process begins with a comprehensive review of families’ eligibility collected by an online form through the National Association of Independent School’s (NAIS) School and Student Services.

To learn more about applying for financial aid, register with NAIS’s School and Student Services or call them at 800-344-8348. You can also read their commonly asked questions and answers (FAQ) online.
