Affording Collegiate

An independent school education is one of the most important investments you can make for your child and we hope that you will consider Louisville Collegiate School. Collegiate values diversity, inclusion and access. Enrolling students from a wide range of economic circumstances is one way that we strive to be diverse and inclusive. The published total cost of tuition for an independent school education can be expensive. To that end, we have created an Indexed Tuition model to support our commitment to an affordable education. The calculator below is designed to provide families an estimated tuition range. Collegiate awarded more than $2.9 million in 2017-18 to approximately 40% of the student body, allowing us to maintain a diverse student population.

Louisville Collegiate School bundles its fees into one, all-inclusive tuition charge. With the exception of a few items listed below, lower and middle school books, academic fees and class overnight trips are included in this single billing. Also included are lunch, musical instrument rental and student-accident insurance.

While there is an expectation of some tuition payment from all families, no family should assume that a Collegiate education is out of reach for financial reasons. Collegiate School supports a tuition assistance program for families of students who are unable to meet all tuition costs.
