INDEXED TUITION 

Greenwood School is committed to making our educational experience accessible to all families through our Indexed Tuition approach, which takes into account a family’s ability to pay when setting annual tuition.   For the 2019-2020 school year, the tuition index is from $3,500 to $28,450. Approximately one-third of our students pay an annual amount below the top of the index.

  • Pre-K & Kindergarten index range: $3,500 - $24,950

    Pre-K & Kindergarten 1/2 day, 2-day or 3 day programs index range varies; please contact the Admissions Office for details.

  • Elementary Grades 1 - 5 index range: $3,500 - $27,085

  • Middle School Grades 6-8 index range: $3,500 - $28,450

what’s included

Tuition includes the cost of instruction, books, materials, NEST Program & Transportation, class plays, and class trips (Grades 3-7). Additionally, tuition below the top of the index includes discounted morning & afternoon bus transportation.

HOW TO apply to PAY BELOW THE TOP OF THE INDEX

Indexed Tuition levels are determined for one year and families must reapply every year. Families can expect a similar level year-to-year unless there is a change in income or assets.

ADDitional information

  • Indexed Tuition levels are determined for one year and families must reapply every year. Families can expect a similar level year-to-year unless there is a change in income or assets.

  • Index level determinations take into account a family's entire financial profile, and are determined by Greenwood’s Tuition Committee and SSS.

  • Greenwood School works with families individually and confidentially to determine their index level.

  • For families with separated and/or divorced parents, financial information from both parents/households is taken into consideration.

  • Every student's tuition is indexed to some degree; tuition at the top of the index does not completely cover the full cost of educating a student at Greenwood School.
