Affording TNS

Current Tuition:
Our current tuition rates are designed to support the costs of delivering high-quality education while ensuring affordability for our students and families. For specific tuition rates, please refer to our admissions office or the most recent fee schedule.

Pricing History: 
Over the years, we've worked diligently to maintain a fair and competitive pricing model. Our historical pricing demonstrates our commitment to balancing affordability with the highest standards of education.

Cost of Education vs. Tuition:
We understand that the true cost of educating a student often exceeds the tuition fees. At The New School, we invest in various resources, including faculty, facilities, technology, and extracurricular activities, to provide a comprehensive educational experience. Our tuition fees reflect a portion of these costs, and we strive to supplement the remainder through various funding sources and donations.
