Tuition and Fees
Investing in a TGS Education
All tuition costs are listed below for each grade level. Tuition only covers part of the cost of educating each student at The Grammar School. Presently, the cost of education exceeds tuition by $2,000 per year. The School’s endowment, annual contributions from alumni, present and past parents, faculty and staff, and friends of The Grammar School make up the difference. When a child is accepted to The Grammar School, parents are required to confirm the acceptance with a $750 deposit, which will be credited to the tuition bill. The Grammar School offers need-based financial aid for qualifying applicants. All Grammar School students, including preschoolers, benefit from an array of enrichment experiences each week, including including studio art, music, library, physical skills development, French or Spanish.
