Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Assistance and Scholarship Options

An independent school education is a significant investment in a child’s future. Although some families are able to make the investment as part of their financial planning, we understand that others may need help.

Ridley College offers financial assistance and scholarships to eligible students. However, given that funds are limited, these awards are not guaranteed and not all students who apply will qualify. We ask families to understand that financial assistance and scholarships should not be the first consideration when applying.
