Nightingale is committed to the principle that no qualified student should be unable to attend the school because of financial reasons. Thanks to a generous scholarship program supported by our parents, alumnae, and trustees, financial aid is made available to many of our families. To apply for financial aid, please file the Parents' Financial Statement with the School and Student Service for Financial Aid in Princeton, NJ; more information is on their Web site at sss.nais.org. As scholarship funds are limited, please complete all documentation as early as possible, and certainly by the deadline of January 20.

The New York City Board of Education provides free bus transportation (in Manhattan only) , to and from school for students in grades K-6, who live more than one-half mile from Nightingale. Most often the New York City Board of Education’s Office of Pupil Transportation is able to assign a bus stop for each student, but not always. Although this service does not pick up your daughter at your door, designated stops are usually within a few blocks of the student’s home. A parent or caregiver must meet the bus on the return trip in the afternoon. Families who live more than one-half mile from school but do not wish to utilize the Board of Education’s bus service may apply for a student Metrocard. Qualifying students in grades 7-12 are issued a student Metrocard.
A morning bus from Brooklyn is also available for an additional cost.
