Need-based Scholarships

We believe that the diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds represented in our school families enrich each member of the larger community. To ensure that our school remains accessible to all families our Board of Trustees has made a commitment to provide need-based financial assistance for qualified applicants. More than a quarter of Kazoo School families receive some level of scholarship. The amounts range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand; the goal is to help families with an economic need.

Kazoo School is a member of School and Student Services (SSS), an organization sponsored by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). SSS is a third party provider that performs an objective analysis of a family’s financial needs to ensure fair and consistent review of each scholarship application SSS evaluates the family’s assets and liabilities to determine the recommended amount of the scholarship. Information from that assessment is confidential, and shared only with the Business Manager and Head of School. Families who qualify to receive a scholarship must re-apply annually.

The School offers need-based scholarship to families. Please note your interest in applying for a scholarship in the appropriate space on the admissions application. Once you have submitted an admissions application, you may complete an application for Financial Aid at SSSbyNAIS.org.
