Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid
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 2022-2023, 351 students (28.8% of the student body) were awarded financial aid grants in excess of $8 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 Clarity to host the application for financial assistance. Clarity 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 $60.
To apply for financial assistance, parents should indicate their plans to apply for aid via the application for admission. This prompts the admission office to download your financial aid application from Clarity. Families then create an account with Clarity to complete the financial aid application by February 1, 2024 (this is the same deadline as the application for admission). Financial aid awards are sent March 29 with your child's admissions decision. Accepted families receiving a financial aid grant must submit their enrollment contract by April 12 to guarantee their award.
When completing the financial aid application online, Clarity will automatically import your 2022 1040 and W2 from the IRS. You will also be asked to upload a recent 2023 pay stub for each parent/caregiver in the household(s). Depending upon your individual family circumstances, other documents may be required. Clarity will identify any additional supporting financial information needed to complete your application for financial aid.
In addition, for families who are accepted and chose to enroll at Breck, all 2023 tax forms must be submitted by May 1, 2024. Clarity will prompt you to authorize them to import this required documentation from the IRS. Questions regarding applying for financial aid via Clarity? Please review this helpful application guide.

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.
