Tuition for the 2014-15 school year is $9228 for grades 1-8 and $8798 for kindergarten. Tuition for the 2015-16 school year will be $9684 for grades 1-8 and $8976.

Sliding Scale Matrix

– As indicated on the matrix, the maximum tuition is $9684 for the 2015-2016 school year. If you choose to pay the maximum, you are not required to have an income verification through TADS (*see below).

– Should you be unable to pay the maximum tuition you may use the sliding scale matrix. Find the line with your family’s Adjusted Gross Income range. To the right of that number range you will find your monthly tuition. Multiply that by 12 to determine your annual tuition. You will need to apply to TADS to verify your income.

ATA (Accessible to All)

– If you determine that you are unable to pay the sliding scale amount for your Adjusted Gross Income, you must indicate on your contract that you are applying for ATA.

– The process starts with income verification through TADS. Instructions on applying to TADS will be provided in your enrollment packet.
