Tuition Rates 2022-2023

 

The full cost of our program at the Sycamore School is covered only in part by tuition. The rest is underwritten by generous gifts from the school’s community and beyond.  It has always been our mission to maintain an excellent staff of educators and top quality programs while keeping our tuition at an affordable rate.

 

Tuition for the 2022-23 school year is $22,000

 

Upon enrollment, a materials fee ($320) and deposit ($2,000) are due.  The deposit is non-refundable and will be applied to your tuition.

We offer three payment plans:

 

Single payment:  Due July 1, 2022

Two payments:  Half due July 1, 2022 and January 1, 2023

Ten payments:  From July, 2022- April, 2023

How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

 

It is of utmost importance to us at the Sycamore School that financial considerations are not the driving factor in deciding whether or not to join our community.  We are committed to creating an inclusive student body and broadening socioeconomic diversity by providing needs-based financial aid to qualified students. Candidates are admitted to Sycamore School based on established admission criteria, regardless of family financial circumstances. 

 

Sycamore School partners with TADS and SSS in determining eligibility. To apply for tuition assistance, please complete the online Parents’ Financial Statement (PSF) and upload the required supporting documents as outlined in the TADS tuition assistance portal.  Detailed instructions for submitting your application can be downloaded HERE.

Tuition assistance applications are due by February 15, 2023.

 

For split households, the school considers the income and assets of both biological parents.  Each biological parent must submit all required documents and complete the tuition assistance application. Tuition assistance is reviewed annually.  Returning families should follow the same process to apply for assistance each year.

 

Your financial aid award will be communicated along with your admission decision for new families and re-enrollment contract for returning families.
