Financial Aid

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
  • Parents must also submit a formal written request for financial aid to Buxton. This document can be mailed to our business address or emailed to 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."

  • “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.”
