Affording Collegiate

An independent school education is one of the most important investments you can make for your child. Collegiate is committed to enrolling students from a wide range of socioeconomic levels. Our Indexed Tuition Model is designed to tailor a tuition price that matches your family’s demonstrated need. Collegiate awarded more than $3 million in tuition assistance to approximately 40% of the student body for the 2020-21 school year.

Tuition includes daily lunch, off-campus field trips, books for grades JK-8, academic fees, overnight trips, musical instrument rental and more. We encourage you to use the Financial Assistance Calculator below to estimate a tuition price for your family.

*Based on a family of 4 with two parents filing jointly and one tuition-paying student you may qualify to pay this projected tuition amount.

*To qualify for Collegiate’s Indexed Tuition, families must apply through a standard process (SSS) administered by the National Association of Independent Schools. Please note that there are many factors that go into determining a family’s tuition level, including the availability of funds and Collegiate’s enrollment.  Additional factors are considered by SSS when evaluating a family’s ability to pay, including but not limited to: family size, the number of children attending tuition charging schools, and assets and liabilities not reflected in household income.
