Additional Costs

Personal Expenses: All families are asked to remit a $500 deposit with their enrollment contract. These funds are in addition to the tuition fees and will be applied to a student account that is available to pay for school store purchases, optional off-campus trips, and all-program trips. Any funds remaining in this account are credited back to the families at the end of the summer.

Transportation Expenses: On June 29, July 20, and August 8 Cardigan will offer transportation for students to and from both Logan Airport in Boston and JFK Airport in New York City. The prices for this transportation and the ability to reserve a spot will be included in the preparation forms distributed in the spring.


Financial Aid

Cardigan Summer Session provides tuition assistance on an as-needed basis. Financial aid decisions are made independently from admission decisions, and do not affect a candidate's chances for enrollment in Summer Session. While financial aid is limited, 24% percent of 2018 Summer Session students were awarded financial aid, with the average award of $3,679.

To apply for financial aid:

  • Complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) using 152943 as Cardigan’s code before March 8, 2019.
  • Once your 2017 taxes are complete, upload these documents to your account on SSS: 1040, 1040A, or 1040 EZ; W2; 1099; SSS Business/Farm Statement (if applicable) 


Financial aid awards are mailed to families beginning March 22, 2019. Families are asked to communicate their enrollment decision based on their financial aid award within two weeks of receiving the award. New financial aid applications submitted after the March due date are processed on a case-by-case basis and will be subject to availability of funds.
