Tuition and Financial Aid
Collegiate is fully committed to diversity, equity, and belonging. A generously-funded financial aid program ensures that our excellent educational program is accessible to highly qualified students, regardless of family income. Aligned with our mission to educate talented, motivated students who show intellectual promise, a more diverse student body in our classrooms benefits all students and makes for a teaching and learning experience that is much stronger.
Collegiate School has one, all-inclusive tuition charge. The fee includes books, supplies, class trips, lunch, musical instrument rental, student-accident insurance, and tuition-refund insurance. Lower and Middle School students are provided with the use of necessary technology; Upper School students bring their own device, and financial support is available for students on financial aid. Athletic clothing and Advanced Placement examinations require an extra charge.
For returning students, tuition is payable in three installments: 15% upon registration, 60% on May 31, and 25% on December 31. A ten-month payment plan is also available through SMART TUITION. For new students, a non-refundable deposit is required upon registration.
Collegiate School supports a financial aid program for families who are unable to meet all tuition costs. No family should assume that a Collegiate School education is out of reach for financial reasons.
Collegiate School welcomes families to consider applying to our financial aid program so that is not a prohibitive factor to attending Collegiate.
An independent school education is both a powerful investment in your child’s future as well as a considerable financial commitment. The purpose of our financial aid program is to help fill the gap between the cost of a year’s tuition and what a family can afford to pay toward this cost. When a family receives financial aid, support may also be provided for tuition and other Collegiate programs that enrich the experience of the student and encourage the participation of his family in the life of the school. These might include athletic trip participation, extracurricular opportunities, and event participation costs.
The Financial Aid Committee awards grants to families who demonstrate financial need as determined by the School & Student Service for Financial Aid needs analysis system (SSS).
Families participating in the financial aid program are billed according to a ten-month payment plan.
Financial aid is available at all grade levels. Collegiate School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, family type/structure, disability, or other legally protected class in the administration of its financial aid program.
