Financial Aid


The Manitou School is committed to making an exceptional education accessible to a wide community of students. We recognize that a Manitou education is a significant investment in your child’s future, and we are dedicated to helping as many families as possible afford this educational choice.

To that end, Manitou offers need-based financial aid for Elementary and Middle School students. As we are still a very small school, our financial aid is limited and comes directly out of our operations budget. The application is hosted through Clarity, an online form that calculates the estimated family contribution toward tuition based on each family’s unique financial situation. We award financial aid according to demonstrated financial need and available funds.

If you’d like to apply for financial aid, please indicate this on your admissions application, and we will reach out directly with next steps. The financial aid application fee is $60. (Clarity automatically waives this fee for families whose application indicates significant financial need.)
