Tuition & Fees

Rates are set by February for the following year. The tuition and fees for the 2019-2020 school year are as follows:

  • Tuition is $8,640 for Kindergarten

  • Tuition is $11,100 for Grades 1-5

  • Tuition is $11,450 for Grades 6-8

  • An application fee of $75 per student is due upon submission of the admissions application.

  • An enrollment deposit of $400 (non-refundable) per student secures your child’s space and is then deducted from the annual tuition amount.

  • There is a supply fee of $450 for Kindergarten, $550 for 1st-5th grade students, and $650 for 6th-8th grade students.

  • All families are also required to pay a tuition insurance fee of $250 per student. This fee alleviates families from their tuition obligation in cases where a student’s withdrawal from school becomes necessary.

  • There are three payment options (tuition and fees are added together):

    • Pay in full by May 20th (receive a $100 per student discount).

    • Pay in two equal payments by May 20th and November 20th.

    • Pay in twelve equal payments from May through April through FACTS Payment Plans – click here to sign up for auto-pay.
