Schedule of Fees
Note: The fees listed below are based on the 2017-18 school year. Tuition is determined on an annual basis in January by the Board of Trustees. Tuition typically increases between 3%-5%. Each family is assessed a $525 Facilities Maintenance Fee and $250 per student Technology Fee.

The signed Enrollment Contract, Reservation Deposit and Tuition Payment Preference Form guarantee the applicant a place in next year’s class.

Financial aid is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. The school uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment as a means of obtaining an objective analysis of each family’s financial need. Award decisions are not made by FACTS, as they simply provide us with data in order to fairly distribute financial aid awards. The school has a small, confidential committee which reviews the assessment figures provided by FACTS in order to provide tuition grants to as many students as possible. Families wishing to apply for financial aid should indicate that on the back of the application for admission. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by a specific date. To keep the cost down for all applicants, paper applications are not available. If assistance is needed, you should contact the Business Office as soon as possible. Applicants may apply online beginning in mid-January of the upcoming year at www.factstuitionaid.com . All deadlines must be adhered to, as financial aid is available on a limited basis. Typically, no student is awarded assistance in excess of 50% of the total tuition; however, exceptions have been made on a case by case basis. All consideration of financial aid is kept confidential and does not affect how a student is considered in the application process. Students who receive financial aid are required to re-apply each year. Renewal of aid is based on proof of continued financial need. In the case of divorced or separated parents, the incomes of both biological parents and stepparents are considered. Being admitted does not guarantee financial aid.
Christ Episcopal School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin or disability in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
