We believe a diverse socioeconomic student population enriches the Bement experience for all students. We understand the cost of attending Bement can be a challenge, and our Board of Trustees set aside funds to assist families that demonstrate financial need. For the 2019-2020 school year, Bement awarded $1,205,799 in financial aid to 38% of the student body.
Bement offers financial aid to U.S. citizens based on the demonstrated financial need of the family. Our school does not offer scholarships or merit awards for academic, athletic, or artistic ability. Historically, our financial aid budget has allowed us to award between 50% to 70% of demonstrated need.
