Tuition Assistance

An exceptional education made more accessible.

When John Paul and Alice Allgood Cooper founded Darlington School in 1905, they sought to provide “the best educational opportunities at the least possible cost.” 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.
Please contact the Admission Office to inquire about space or to schedule your private visit. Don't delay as there are already wait lists in pre-K and grades 1, 2, and 4.

Financial Aid

Financial aid helps close the gap between tuition and a family’s ability to pay, as determined by the Clarity. 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 and meet GOAL's eligibility requirements.

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 for Upper School students.

Our daughter received a scholarship to attend Darlington, and we are extremely thankful that she is part of the Darlington Community. From the academics, athletics, enrichments and newfound relationships, we feel Darlington helped mold Georgeanna into the young lady she has become. We are eternally grateful for the generosity of the alumni and donors who make it all possible.”

"Darlington has made a huge impact on my life. I have made friends from many different backgrounds and cultures. I have also made lifelong memories during experiences like Rumpus, which can only be found here. I owe all of this to the donors who made my scholarship possible."

"Darlington has brought me the gift of building new friendships, experiencing new experiences, and significantly growing academically. Everyone is so welcoming and accepting of new people and students treat everyone like a part of their family. Every time I go through the front gate, I feel as if I am coming back home."
