The Park School’s tuition is reviewed and revised each year as a function of our budgeting process. However, this tuition may not reflect the true amount that the average Park School family pays, nor does it capture the entire value of a Park School education, which is annually supplemented by charitable giving, endowment income, and other sources of revenue.

We recognize that the cost of a Park School education is a considerable investment, but that it is also invaluable in terms of your child’s future. We are committed to trying to keep tuition within reach for our families and offer need-based tuition assistance designed to allow students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds to receive a high-quality independent school education.
