Thank you for your interest in Beacon Hill Nursery School for the 2023-2024 school year! We strive to make Beacon Hill Nursery School accessible and affordable to all families interested in pursuing a Beacon Hill Nursery School education. Financial aid is a key resource in making this possible.

The school uses the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to collect and analyze family data in determining need. Financial choices that result in increased expenses or decreased income will not be underwritten by the school’s financial aid program.
