Sibling Discount

Tuition is reduced by 10% (in the least expensive program) for the 2nd child, 15% (in the least expensive program) for the 3rd child. The discount is based on the Plan B rate for the selected enrollment option.

Other Expenses

We know that parents do not care for "surprise" expenses, and no one likes to be "nickle and dimed". Therefore all expenses possible are included in tuition, such as student expenses for the 5th grade trip abroad, books, field trips, consumable school supplies, many festival costumes, two class parties per year, and more. Parents should plan to pay separately for lunches, some durable school supplies that children can use year after year, and optional after school classes.


Every family is asked to participate in fundraisers to help the school support the best education possible with the most appropriate and up-to-date student, teacher and campus resources. See more information at
