Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available for qualified families to help cover the costs of the Aramark food service plan for our Residential High School and the tuition costs for summer programs. Families that have received financial assistance in the past must reapply for financial assistance each year to be considered for aid. 

The Governor's School provides financial assistance for qualifying students with funding from the Governor's School Foundation, a private nonprofit organization that raises money to support the school. Learn more about the foundation's impact at
