Financial Aid for Group Trips

Thanks to the generosity of donors and the support of the School, we are able to offer financial assistance to students who currently qualify for tuition assistance.

Boys on financial assistance at Belmont Hill have the opportunity to receive financial aid each year for the Community Service Trip and varsity sports trips.

In addition, a boy may receive financial aid for one additional School trip during Middle School (Forms I, II, III) and one additional School trip during Upper School (Form IV, V, VI) regardless of year of entry to the School.

No separate aid application is necessary. The School will automatically grant trip aid at the same percentage of tuition assistance a family currently receives. For example, a family that currently qualifies for 70% tuition assistance will receive 70% assistance for a trip if funds are sufficient.

If funds are insufficient and trip aid falls below the percentage of tuition assistance received, the Director of Financial Aid will contact affected families who have submitted deposits as quickly as possible, and communicate the amount of aid that is available. Families on financial aid will then have one week to opt out of that trip and request a return of their deposit. After that point, deposits are nonrefundable and families are responsible for the balance of the trip cost, which will be billed directly.

To secure a place on a trip, a student receiving financial aid must submit a deposit along with a signed permission form. Amounts for those deposits vary by trip and are listed above. The deposit represents a minimum payment, regardless of the amount of aid a family receives.

The School reserves the right to alter trip assistance policies as circumstances require at any time, but will strive to adhere to the guidelines indicated above.
