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

Please feel free to contact The Admissions Office at (845) 373-2012 at any time during the financial aid application process.

Divorced or Separated Parents

In considering applications for financial assistance, the matter of divorce or separation of parents is a difficult one. We will consider the assets of both natural parents, if living, before making any award, and cannot be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility of educational expense. If either parent has remarried, we will also consider the assets of the stepparent, always bearing in mind the obligation of that stepparent to his or her own natural children.

If the parents are divorced or separated, It is necessary that both natural parents and their current spouses, if any, fill out the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The information provided will be kept in strictest confidence. It is the responsibility of the custodial parent to ask the noncustodial parent to fill out a PFS. If this information is not provided, the Financial Aid Committee will be unable to consider awarding a grant to the student. An extra form for the noncustodial parent may be obtained from the Admissions Office. Once the family’s contribution is determined, the Committee will award a grant if funds are available.
