The value of a Cranbrook Schools education

Understanding that a Cranbrook Schools education will have a transformative impact on a student's future, Cranbrook is committed to building a community of talented, passionate, and driven students from a wide range of backgrounds independent of their financial circumstances.

By offering a robust financial aid program, Cranbrook is able to attract the best possible students without regard to a family's ability to afford the cost of a Cranbrook education. The Financial Aid Office strives to accurately assess financial need and to equitably distribute grants to those families who demonstrate such need. We encourage any family who may need assistance to apply for financial aid. Last year Cranbrook Schools awarded more than $9,000,000 in financial aid.
