Tuition & Financial Aid
OES is committed to embracing diversity of all kinds. We seek students who will thrive in a challenging academic environment regardless of a family's ability to pay tuition. OES awarded more than $2.2 million in need-based financial aid to over 15% of our day and boarding students for the 2016-17 school year. Financial Aid awards are grants and, therefore, do not need to be re-paid.
Although the School's resources do not allow us to meet all requests each year, no family should hesitate to apply because of limited financial resources.
