TUITION, FEES & ASSISTANCE

Look into our Tuition Assistance program

Tuition assistance awards are grants, not loans. In the 2017-2018 school year we awarded $519,144 in tuition assistance:

  • to families with annual household incomes within the range of $15,000-$225,000.
  • Grants ranged from $1,500-$19,400.
  • Grants averaged $8,900.
  • These grants paid anywhere from 9%-94% of a student’s annual tuition.
  • On average, the grants paid 59% of a student’s tuition.
  • 17.6% of students received awards.
  • 62 students received awards.

We know that independent school tuition may seem daunting, so we urge you to look into Tuition Assistance. If our school is a good fit for your student and your family, we want to work with you so that your child may attend. Tuition assistance is available for qualified Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary students' tuition, based on school policies, demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds.
