Tuition & Financial Aid


As a school, we are committed to extending the benefit of a Marvelwood experience to as many students and families as possible. Approximately 25% of the student body receives financial aid awards each year. We are pleased to join the growing ranks of schools taking the lead to make tuition more affordable by offering several initiatives for the 2024-2025 academic year:

We are offering a 10% tuition discount for siblings and for children, stepchildren and grandchildren of Marvelwood alumni. This discount can be used to supplement any financial aid awards.

Marvelwood School is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.

To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Simply use the dropdown menu in the application to select those schools.

Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as Marvelwood may require you to upload additional documentation.

The deadline for completing the financial aid application including relevant supplemental documents is February 1, 2024.

If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available through the “Help” button in the bottom left of the screen, as well as email and phone support at or 206-210-3752, in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish.

We will communicate our financial aid decision to you. To make our decision, we use the information from Clarity as a starting point and consider our school policies, practices, and available budget.
