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. Regardless of the number of children in a family pursuing admission, the fee for submitting the online application is $51. To apply for financial assistance, parents create an account and upload the required documentation by the deadlines outlined on this page.
As you can see from the tables below, we are committed to assisting families in all grades attending Breck. An overview of our grant recipients by grade as well as by family income provides insight into the scope of financial support Breck offers. Need-based grants were awarded to families with a wide range of annual incomes. Breck’s Financial Aid committee considers total income as a starting point, along with many other factors, such as family size, number of children in tuition-bearing schools, age of the primary working parent, assets, liabilities and unusual allowable expenses. Individual circumstances vary greatly, so consider the following as a general guideline only.
