Affording Foxcroft

Endowed Scholarships

Foxcroft is grateful to the many donors who, through their generosity and thoughtfulness, have provided the opportunity for future students to attend our boarding school. These funds do not require an additional application and are awarded based on the overall strength of the general admission application and on specific criteria stipulated by the donors. When paired with need-based assistance, named scholarships may replace portions of FA awards to permit the funds to be used to support other students.
