List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Ranney Fund? Why doesn't tuition cover the total cost of each student?

    Ranney’s annual operating budget envisions investments in our innovative programs, robust student life, professional development for faculty, and improvements to campus, as well as the opportunity to offer merit scholarships and need-based financial aid. Like most independent schools, Ranney relies on charitable donations to make these extraordinary investments in our students possible. Rather than raising tuition, the Ranney Fund offers our community a tax-deductible opportunity to invest in transformative programs at a level appropriate for each family. Our goal is 100% participation!
