Financial Aid

At Bridgton Academy, we are committed to helping families provide this opportunity to students from all socio-economic backgrounds. To fulfill this goal, we comply with the financial aid policy of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), which is to provide financial aid to the extent possible based on a family’s need, not on academic, athletic, or extracurricular performance.

Bridgton Academy Grants

Bridgton Academy grants are financial aid awards from the school which do not require repayment. On average, approximately sixty percent (60%) of Bridgton Academy’s students receive a need-based financial grant. Financial aid at Bridgton Academy is based on a family’s demonstrated need, not upon the candidate’s academic, athletic, or extracurricular merit. To determine the most equitable estimate of money a family has available to contribute towards education costs, Bridgton Academy relies on a financial need analysis as determined by either TADS, the College Scholarship Service (CSS), or the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). This figure serves as the basis for determining financial need.

Financial Aid Application Process

To be considered for financial aid, parents must complete and submit one of the following forms to its processor as soon as possible.

If you will need financial aid, complete one of the financial aid forms as soon as possible; do not wait for an admission decision before applying for financial aid. When an applicant has been accepted for admission to Bridgton Academy, and his financial information has been received from any of the above agencies, the Financial Aid Committee determines if the family qualifies for aid and, if so, the amount of aid awarded by the school. Notification of a financial aid decision is made in a letter sent to the applicant.

If you have any questions regarding financial aid, please contact Chris Webb, Chief Enrollment and Advancement Officer, by phone at 207-647-3322 x1212 or by e-mail at cwebb@bridgtonacademy.org.
