In an effort to simplify our tuition assistance process we have announced a tiered tuition system. The new structure provides consistency and streamlines the financial aid process. We continue to include options for a sibling discount and the flexibility in choice of a 10 month or 12 month payment plan.

We are committed to making the school accessible to those who wish to enroll. Please contact us to learn more about a customized aid package.
