Heathwood Hall offers the following merit scholarships for new students: the Rainey Scholarship and the Timmerman Scholarship. See below for more details.

Eligible candidates should contact Jessie Garlinghouse in the admission office at (link sends e-mail).

In addition to standard admission requirements, scholarship candidates must submit a supplemental application and schedule an interview with the scholarship committee.

Scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee composed of admission staff, administrators, and teachers.


Heathwood Hall’s commitment to inclusion has been an essential element in the School’s educational philosophy and culture since its founding in 1951. Heathwood remains committed to a school community enriched with students from a variety of economic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Participation from a wide range of families is critical to the health of the School.

Heathwood offers a wide range of tuition assistance. The School encourages families to request information about tuition assistance if they have concerns about their ability to afford full tuition. While every family is expected to contribute to the cost of tuition and fees and to support the community to the extent they are able, the School does not always expect tuition levels will be the same.

To help us objectively assess how much a family can contribute to their educational expenses, Heathwood Hall uses School and Student Services (SSS) by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) as a trusted third party. We use the SSS figures as the baseline for our tuition assistance determinations, taking into consideration the School’s policies, class size, and the resources available for returning students as well as applicant families.

To apply for financial assistance, go to to begin an application. Your completed information will be sent directly to the School.

For additional assistance, contact Jessie Garlinghouse, Director of Admission and Financial Aid, (link sends e-mail).

The Tuition assistance Committee will begin making awards in late January, once tuition has been set for the following school year. Awards will be made in the order in which they were received. Families will be notified by letter.

Heathwood Hall offers tuition assistance in the form of a tuition grant. The award is applied toward the tuition for the upcoming school year and does not need to be repaid.
