Financial Aid FAQs

The following are commonly asked questions that can help you understand how Brewster awards financial aid and supports financing. If you still have questions after reading, please contact Rebecca Brooks, associate director of admission and financial aid, at or at 603-569-7200.

How do I apply for financial aid?

Visit the Financial Aid page of our website for application instructions. Families must apply online by visiting School and Student Services (SSS) and completing a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The Brewster School code is 1828.

What is financial aid and how is it different from loans?

Financial aid is a grant given to qualifying families to offset the cost of a Brewster education. Unlike a loan, which requires repayment, a grant does not have to be repaid.

Where does financial aid come from?

Each year Brewster's Board of Trustees establishes a financial aid budget, which currently represents 11 percent of the Academy's operating funds. Brewster is committed to a comprehensive financial aid program which exists to attract and allow for a broad selection of students to be a part of our community.

How will applying for financial aid affect my child's admission?

Financial aid determination is separate from the Admissions decision. However, timely completion of the financial aid paperwork may expedite the financial aid award decision.

Will my financial aid award change from year to year?

Brewster reviews financial aid awards annually and adjusts them, if necessary, to reflect changes in parent financial need and in the school's total financial aid budget. The amount of any assistance is determined by the demonstrated need of the student's family, the student's performance, and the availability of Brewster's financial aid funds.
