Financial Aid:

We recognize that the cost of a Seattle Girls’ School education is a factor for every family regardless of income level. We also believe that each family bears the primary responsibility for financing their child’s education to the extent to which they are able. To help families with the cost of this education we offer need-based financial aid. Financial aid grants are based on need, available funds, and number of applicants applying.
