Tuition and Fees
We have a two-tiered tuition. Tuition for Grades 1-5 is $9,384 or $782 per month for the 2019-2020 year. Tuition for grades 6-8 is $9,984 or $832 per month for the 2019-2020 year. Tuition includes all fees with the exception of a $150 re-enrollment fee for current students each year, and $300 for new students, paid at the moment of re-enrollment or enrollment. The only other expense paid outside of tuition is the 8th grade trip. Both students and parents pay a certain amount to make this trip possible.
Tuition increases by a little bit every year; the Board sets the tuition amount every spring before the re-enrollment time begins.
Tuition Assistance Program
As is the case in all private schools, we have families who want their children to receive the education we offer, but can’t afford the full tuition. The school is happy to help; we value all applicants!
With this goal, each year the Board establishes a tuition assistance fund, using a portion of the money raised through annual giving and school-event fundraisers. The size of the fund varies, based on the overall budget picture and school needs for the year. The amount a family receives also varies, based on how many families request aid in a given year and the “size of the pot.” Every family who qualifies is guaranteed some help.
To assess eligibility, the school uses the services of the School and Student Services (SSS), an independent agency of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Parents who want financial assistance must submit their tax returns online to the SSS. The school sends out tuition assistance award letters for the upcoming school year in mid-May.
