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 families with students in grades K-12 last 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 many factors 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.
