Tuition and Financial Aid

Harpeth Hall offers a transformative education to the girls and young women of Nashville.

We are delighted you are interested in Harpeth Hall. For many families, investing in an independent school education requires careful financial consideration. We work to keep tuition and fees as low as possible to make a Harpeth Hall education feasible. Harpeth Hall seeks to enroll talented young women regardless of their family's ability to pay. Over $2 million in financial aid was awarded to 17% of the student body in the 2019-20 school year and 98% of demonstrated need was met

Harpeth Hall is dedicated to the education of girls and young women and the development of their limitless intellectual and personal potential. A Harpeth Hall education inspires young women to Think Critically, to Lead Confidently, and to Live Honorably. Being part of the Harpeth Hall community is a unique experience that is different from other schools.

Financial Aid at Harpeth Hall

Admission decisions are made separately from financial aid determinations. The application process for both occur concurrently, in parallel. Families will receive an estimated financial aid package at the same time they receive their admission decision. All families contribute toward the cost of a Harpeth Hall education. We expect this investment to be among a family’s highest financial priorities. Financial aid determinations are confidential agreements between Harpeth Hall’s Financial Aid Committee and each family.

For any additional questions about applying for financial aid, please contact Director of Admission and Financial Aid, Wellesley L. Wilson, at 615-346-0098, or Associate Director of Admission and Financial Aid, Jessica Viner, at 615-346-0103.

The most important things I learned at Harpeth Hall are confidence and perseverance. There were times when I fit in with the crowd and other times I did not. Regardless, I gained the strength to overcome obstacles and keep standing.
