Affording The New School
We know some families do not consider The New School because of cost, but we believe it’s worth taking the time to explore the options of affordability. At The New School your child is known by their teachers and their individual education is valued. An investment in your child’s K-12 education is an investment in their future success.
We believe more children should have access to independent education and not be hindered by financial need. Here at The New School, we want to provide students who show academic achievement, citizenship and leadership the opportunity to become a life-long learner.
We are committed to giving all families the opportunity to explore the potential of an independent school. With different academic scholarship opportunities and a financial assistance program available, The New School accepts students based on academic potential, not the ability to afford.

"They do everything they can to help us get to where we want to be — and beyond. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love it here." — Cammie Parker, Class of 2020
Tuition at The New School
Tuition at The New School includes more than just your student's education. In addition to the best possible instruction from our high-quality faculty, tuition includes:
- Before-School Care from 7:15-8:30 a.m.
- After-School Care from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

The New School offers financial assistance and several tuition assistance policies. The need for financial assistance should never discourage a family from applying to The New School.
Why would you need a Tuition Refund Plan?
Your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition as stated in the school’s enrollment contract. The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.
If your son or daughter withdraws, the Tuition Refund Plan will pay benefits (subject to the terms of the policy and the amount insured) to the school, which provides substantial assistance in meeting your financial obligation.
Every year, thousands of students must withdraw from private schools. The following are examples of reasons why:
- Family Move
- Change of Objective
- Injury or Sickness
- Death of Parent or Student
- Disciplinary Dismissal
If you have any questions about the Tuition Refund Plan, please contact the Admission Office.
