Financial Aid

An independent school education is a major investment that often stretches a family’s resources. To assist families in financing a Gateway education, Gateway provides need-based financial aid to approximately 30% of our families. Our commitment to providing financial aid is founded in our belief in building a diverse community of students and families in many areas.  Based upon the calculation of each family’s need, many of our families receive partial grants that make a Gateway education more affordable.

Financial aid calculations are made by an independent organization, Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). All financial aid applications and family data are completely confidential.  Admissions decisions are made separately from financial aid decisions.
