Since our founding in 1935, The Putney School has been committed to socioeconomic diversity. We follow the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) guiding principle that the responsibility of financing a private education rests primarily with a student’s family. We invest more than 20 percent of tuition revenues into need-based awards, along with endowed funds which support all Putney students.
