Financial Aid

For more than 100 years, Calvert School has provided children in Baltimore with the fundamental skills and strong foundation they need to become successful leaders and lifelong learners. The financial aid program is designed to help families who could not otherwise afford the cost of a Calvert education by helping to fill the gap between tuition fees and the family’s ability to pay those costs.

Calvert's Financial Aid Program

Calvert School is committed to maintaining a diverse student body that is representative of the cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity of the surrounding communities. We recognize that all of our students benefit when that instruction takes place in classrooms that include a rich and diverse range of identities and perspectives, and we are committed to providing need-based financial assistance. To assist in collecting basic financial information and identifying families with financial need, Calvert utilizes the services of the National Association of Independent Schools’ School and Student Services platform (SSS by NAIS).

Using SSS by NAIS as a guide, the Calvert School Financial Aid Committee performs a need analysis that estimates the amount a family can contribute toward education. Information gathered provides the committee with a starting point for determining how much financial assistance may be offered. It is important that applicants address all financial aid documents with total disclosure and candor.

Families receiving financial aid must reapply each year. Any significant changes in income may affect the amount of the award.

  • Divided & Blended Families

    Calvert School requires that both biological/adoptive parents as well as re-married couples contribute to the cost of education according to their ability.  If divorced or separated, each biological/adoptive parent who shares legal custody must complete a separate financial aid application.  If one or both biological parents have remarried, the stepparent’s financial information must be included on the application.

    The family’s ability to contribute is based upon both parents’ income and assets. Please contact Tom Travers at ttravers@calvertschoolmd.org or 410-243-6054 ext. 153 with any questions.
