Financial Aid Process
Choate uses the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS), along with a family's tax returns to determine a fair and equitable grant for every family.
Choate meets 100% of a family’s demonstrated financial need. Students with exceptionally high levels of demonstrated need receive additional financial assistance with the cost of books, travel, supplies, and other needs.

I am extremely grateful for the generous package that we were given which made it possible for our son to attend Choate. I truly appreciate that the admissions and financial aid office was so supportive.
Financial Aid Determination
After a family submits a PFS, Choate receives a Report of Family Contribution from School and Student Services then uses its own policies to determine the most equitable financial aid grant. In determining a financial aid award, the Financial Aid Committee takes into account not only tuition charges and related fees, but normally anticipated costs such as books, supplies, laundry, and travel. The committee also considers extenuating circumstances that may affect the family’s contribution.
