The Guided Tuition Program allows all families to apply for reduced tuition, as opposed to applying for a “grant” or an “award”. The Guided Tuition level for each student is governed by our charge, the needs of our families and the budget of the school. While all families may apply, priority is given to students entering the Upper and Middle Schools before considering students entering the Lower School. The Guided Tuition Committee operates separately from the admission process and does not impact your child’s admission to the school. Current students applying for Guided Tuition must be in good standing with the school.
