Financing Your Cold Spring Education

At Cold Spring School, we believe in diversity in its many forms, including socioeconomic diversity. We recognize that some families may not explore independent school options, believing that it is just not within their means. However, since its founding, Cold Spring School has been deeply committed to enrolling children from a  spectrum of economic backgrounds with both need-based financial assistance and payment plan options.  To this end, over 44% of the current Cold Spring students receive some degree of financial assistance that varies from 10% to 95% of the tuition.

Cold Spring School offers tuition assistance to qualified students on the basis of demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds.  Financial assistance is allocated on a yearly basis and is renewable each year that a family qualifies. Cold Spring School's financial aid awards are grants, not loans, and therefore, do not need to be paid back to the School.
