Affordability

At Breck, we have long understood that maintaining a diverse community is as much a matter of educational excellence as it is a matter of social and civic responsibility. Our commitment to diversity — including socioeconomic diversity — represents idealism about the kind of learning community we want Breck students to experience and realism about the kind of world in which Breck graduates will live. Financial aid has always been an important tool for ensuring that Breck remains a vibrant community. In 2019-2020, 296 students (26% of the student body) were awarded financial aid grants in excess of $6.1 million. The amounts varied from $1,000 to full tuition and, in some situations, full tuition, books and transportation. Grants carry no obligation of payment back to the school.

Submitting an Application

Breck partners with School and Student Services to host the application for financial assistance. SSS considers a number of factors such as income, assets, liabilities, unusual circumstances, and size of family in determining a recommended family contribution.
