Affordability at Hawken:

At Hawken, we believe that to prepare students for the real world, our community should mirror the real world with a diverse student body that is representative of all socio-economic backgrounds. To achieve this goal, Hawken seeks to enroll the most qualified and compelling students whose families understand and embrace the Purpose, Promise, and Principles of Hawken regardless of socio-economic background through a need-based Flexible Tuition Program for students entering grades K-12. Hawken encourages all families to apply for Flexible Tuition if they think they may qualify.
Hawken has the largest financial assistance or Flexible Tuition budget of any private school in Ohio. Through the Flexible Tuition Program, Hawken provides $13.8 million in assistance to 43% of the student body. The average income of a family receiving tuition reduction from the School is $142,589, and the range of Flexible Tuition family contribution for tuition is $1,500-$36,100.
We encourage families to request further information about Flexible Tuition from the director of Flexible Tuition at if they have concerns about affordability.
