Buxton is committed to empowering our students by creating opportunities for academic, personal and artistic growth. We use our financial aid platform to provide these opportunities to those students who would not otherwise be able to access them. Fifty percent of our student body currently receives financial aid.
The funding process begins in February, and consists of two key parts:
- Parents must submit a completed Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS), a current tax return and all schedules to the School & Student Services by NAIS portal at http://sss.nais.org/.
- Parents must also submit a formal written request to for financial aid to Buxton. This document can be mailed to our business address or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The request must include your specific circumstances and state how much you can afford to pay for tuition.
Together, these documents provide a basis for review by the financial aid committee. Financial aid decisions are made independently from admissions decisions.
"Buxton has given me the freedom to be the person I want to be, make the art I want to make, and learn the things I want to learn. At Buxton we learn not only in the classroom, but in the community. We learn how to be good to each other and how to support each other. Buxton has so much to offer students, both inside the classroom and outside of it."
“At Buxton you get to focus on what you want to be learning; whether it is social skills or in-depth studying- you learn to take responsibility of your education.”
“Living your education means to not only learn things, but to use what you learn in your everyday life.”
“To me, living your education means to be independent, to take charge, to not be afraid of asking for help, to learn from your peers, to love to learn, to take what you have learned from a loving environment and take it into the world.”
“Your education is more than just your time in class, it’s your life as a whole. Learning is not limited to a teacher teaching you something in a classroom.”
“To me, at Buxton, it’s not boundaries that you make, but the ones you break through.”
“At Buxton, I can choose what I want to do with my education. I can design my own path and invest my time studying topics that I’m really interested in.”
“At Buxton you can experience your intellectual development in a community that accepts your perspective of the world.”
“I felt instantly at home when I stepped on the campus. At Buxton, we are in school 24/7. We learn things in the classroom, but we really learn valuable things outside of the classroom. We learn how to work with others and respect each other’s spaces. Our education surrounds us and we learn new things everyday.”
“I chose Buxton over public school because I think I function better in a smaller environment. You’re able to get to know students and faculty on a deeper level, which is rare.”
