Chapel Hill - Chauncy Hall School is committed to helping families afford an education and to assisting students from all backgrounds in having the opportunity to attend our School. We recognize that families make significant investments and sacrifices in order to send their students to CH-CH. We thus offer financial aid resources for families who demonstrate a need as determined through the need-based financial aid application process. Each school year, the School awards over one million dollars in need-based financial aid to more than 20% of its students. While our policy is that we do not grant families with an award of more than 90% of the tuition, the School’s average award for boarding and day students for the exceeds 85% and 56% of those total tuitions, respectively. Due to budget constraints and the amount of applicant needs each year, CH-CH cannot offer financial aid to all qualifying families, nor can the School always meet a family’s demonstrated need. Financial aid granted to a family is a gift from the School, and is not paid back to the School. Further, the financial aid application and awarding process is extremely confidential and individualized, and the financial aid office takes the utmost care to ensure that all families’ information is secure and that all families’ applications are given equal consideration.
In addition to need-based financial aid resources, CH-CH offers grants to prospective 9th grade students through the Charger Scholarship program. Awards will be offered to prospective 9th grade applicants who exhibit strength in character, leadership aptitude, a commitment to learning, and a demonstrated desire to reach their individual potentials as students and community members. Recipients who choose to enroll at CH-CH will continue to carry their scholarship through graduation from our School. With the exception of the Charger Scholarship, Chapel Hill - Chauncy Hall School does not provide merit, artistic, or athletic scholarships. Prospective 9th grade students interested in applying to CH-CH and in becoming a Charger Scholar can access the application online.
