Financial Aid Information

The Financial Aid Committee will accept applications for financial aid anytime prior to the beginning of the Camp Dunnabeck summer session. Understand, however, that most of the financial aid available is awarded early, so the sooner the forms are completed and information is sent in, the better.

The Kildonan School / Camp Dunnabeck uses the School and Student Services (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to collect basic financial information on income, assets, family size and the number of siblings in tuition-charging schools. A need analysis report is prepared by SSS which suggests the amount families can contribute for educational costs. Since not all families’ financial circumstances are equal, the Financial Aid Committee uses the SSS evaluation as a starting point for financial aid.

  • The Kildonan School SSS Code # is 4382
