Tuition Assistance

An exceptional education made more accessible.

When John Paul and Alice Allgood Cooper founded Darlington School in 1905, they sought to provide “the best educational opportunities at the least possible cost.” Between need-based financial aid, merit scholarships, the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, our Alumni Legacy Award, and our payment plans, we are committed to making educational opportunities available and affordable to as many academically qualified students as possible.
We are now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 school year. Please contact the Admission Office to schedule your private visit and interview today!

Financial Aid

Financial aid helps close the gap between tuition and a family’s ability to pay, as determined by the Clarity. Click here to learn how to apply for financial aid.

Merit Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, Darlington has a number of merit scholarships available to new day and domestic boarding applicants each year. Contact our admission team to learn more.

Georgia GOAL Scholarship

The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program provides partial tuition scholarships to Georgia students who want to attend private K-12 schools. To qualify, students must be enrolling in pre-K or kindergarten or transferring to Darlington from a public school and meet GOAL's eligibility requirements.

Alumni Legacy Award

Our alumni are our greatest asset, and there is nothing that makes us more proud than when graduates choose Darlington for their children. If you are an alum who is considering Darlington for your child, please ask about our Alumni Legacy Award for Upper School students.


"As a single mom, the vision and dream of sending my children to private school to better achieve the dreams I had for them seemed so out of reach. Darlington’s Financial aid department put us first and proved to us that we mattered and that we weren’t just another number. Because of them, I am able to achieve the dreams I have for my third-grader as well as her sister. Because of them, this opportunity for my children is possible."

Our daughter is currently receiving a scholarship to attend Darlington, and we are extremely thankful that she is part of the Darlington Community. From the academics, athletics, enrichments and newfound relationships, we feel Darlington has helped mold Georgeanna into the young lady she has become. We are eternally grateful for the generosity of the alumni and donors who make it all possible.”
