Tuition and Financial Aid

We can help you find a way to be here. 
Dana Hall works to create a learning community of students whose backgrounds reflect the world our students will explore, improve, and lead. We know that finances are an important factor for families considering an independent school. The $5.5 million in financial aid we provide to students in a typical year helps ensure that Dana Hall remains a place where a student’s passion, promise, and personality can shine, whatever her family’s financial situation. If those circumstances change significantly during a student’s time at Dana Hall, we work with families to make the necessary adjustments.
