Darlington School: Tuition Assistance
 

Tuition Assistance

An exceptional education made more accessible.

Darlington School believes that the promise and potential of a student is unrelated to financial background. Between need-based financial aid, merit scholarships, the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, our Alumni Legacy Award, and our payment plans, we are committed to making educational opportunities available and affordable to as many academically qualified students as possible. If you want to be here, we try to do everything we can to help.

Financial Aid

Financial aid helps close the gap between tuition and a family’s ability to pay, as determined by the School and Student Services (SSS). Click here to learn how to apply for financial aid.

Merit Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, Darlington has a number of merit scholarships available to new day and domestic boarding applicants each year. Contact our admission team to learn more.

Georgia GOAL Scholarship

The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program provides partial tuition scholarships to Georgia students who want to attend private K-12 schools. To qualify, students must be enrolling in pre-K or kindergarten or transferring to Darlington from a public school.

Alumni Legacy Award

Our alumni are our greatest asset, and there is nothing that makes us more proud than when graduates choose Darlington for their children. If you are an alum who is considering Darlington for your child, please ask about our Alumni Legacy Award.

PARENT TESTIMONIAL

"As a single mom, the vision and dream of sending my children to private school to better achieve the dreams I had for them seemed so out of reach. Darlington’s Financial aid department put us first and proved to us that we mattered and that we weren’t just another number. Because of them, I am able to achieve the dreams I have for my third-grader as well as her sister. Because of them, this opportunity for my children is possible."
