Financial Aid Process


A Brookwood education is a significant investment in your child’s future, and many families have made the investment their financial priority. Brookwood is committed to making it accessible to as many families as possible and each year awards more than $2 million in financial aid to 33% of the student body. Grants range from $3,000 - $32,900, with an average award of $18,700; the average household income of families receiving financial aid is $144,000. We encourage all interested families to explore the value of a Brookwood education.
