Financial Aid

A Delta School education is an investment in your child’s future. Providing an independent school education requires careful financial planning, and it is important to understand that families are expected to bear the cost according to their means and ability to pay.

At its founding, The Delta School Board of Trustees committed to offering financial aid to qualified applicants who provide evidence of need. Currently, 41 percent of our operating budget is reserved for financial aid. Aid is offered to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Our first priority is funding students from the town of Wilson.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Please reach out to Admissions Director, Cynthia Rorie at cynthia.rorie@thedeltaschool.org for specific instructions. 

Applicant families are asked to apply for financial aid using a third party, which provides a framework through which household needs can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations are then used by the Financial Aid Committee in accordance with the School’s policies to determine the award amount. Awards are often given between 10% and 80% of tuition costs.
