Submitting an Application for Financial Aid

Families who wish to apply for Financial Aid for private school should apply for aid at the time they submit their daughter’s application for admission. Financial Aid decisions are made independent of admission decisions. Chatham Hall uses School and Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to process financial aid applications.
