Affording BWS

Brentwood School is committed to making an exceptional education accessible to talented students throughout the Los Angeles area. 

We recognize that a Brentwood School education is a major investment and one that can be a challenge for many families. We remain firmly dedicated to helping families afford this educational choice and annually award approximately $10 million in financial support to students with a demonstrated financial need. With financial support, many families discover that a Brentwood School education is within their reach.

Financial Support

Financial Support at Brentwood School is awarded based on a family's need. As such, a family's application for Financial Support will have no bearing on a student's admission application. In addition, once enrolled a student's Financial Support award is not predicated on their academic performance, or participation in extracurricular activities (i.e. athletics, arts, etc.) in the school. Awards remain solely need based.

Brentwood School uses ISM FAST (Financial Support for School Tuition) to assess a family’s level of need. FAST provides us with unbiased information that allows us to methodically and equitably review each family’s situation. All financial support documents (including FAST application, Tax Returns, etc.) and the review process are held in the strictest confidence.
