Financial Aid Estimator

The Financial Aid Estimator has been provided to help families gauge their potential financial cost.

The Scholarship Estimator is a tool families can use to get an estimate of their contribution for the fall 2019 (CS19) or spring 2020 (CS20) semesters. Provided the family's evaluation of their federal taxable income is correct, the estimation should be close to the scholarship provided. However, final scholarship values are awarded by the school after evaluation of financial information provided by families. The Scholarship Estimator is not a commitment on the part of Conserve School to make a specific award. Need-based financial aid is available to all who qualify while funds remain available. 

Families not applying for Need-Based Scholarships

For the fall 2019 or spring 2020 semesters, all accepted students receive at a minimum a $10,000 Lowenstine Honors Scholarship so the cost to these families is $15,200.

Determination of Taxable Income


Conserve School uses the family’s most recent federal tax forms to determine taxable income. For the current recruitment cycle those are most commonly 2017 forms 1040A or 1040.

  • Form 1040A – Use line 27
  • Form 1040 – Use line 43
  • Families that use a different form and who have questions about determining taxable income can contact the Conserve School Business Office.

Taxable Income below $65,000

For the fall of 2019 (CS19 or spring 2020 (CS20), families with incomes in this range receive $25,000 scholarships so the cost these families is $200, which is the enrollment fee.
