Tuition

Choosing an independent school is an investment in your child’s future.  A few of the many advantages of sending your child to an independent school are high academic standards, individual attention, an inclusive environment, and a lifetime of dividends. Through careful and prudent management of budgeting, we are pleased to share that there is no increase in tuition for the 2021-2022 school year.
