Tuition and Affordability

The Value of a Rigorous, Relevant, Well-Rounded Education

A New Garden Friends School education may well be one of the wisest investments you can make for your child.

For many families, affording an NGFS education takes planning. We employ several strategies to keep costs within reach. For these families, offering their children the opportunity to experience NGFS means making financial decisions and choices. NGFS is committed to offering help to families in planning and making appropriate choices to afford tuition. Options include the tuition payment plan, leadership scholarships for our eighth graders as they transition to our Upper School, and grant awards for families demonstrating financial need.

We encourage you to explore the opportunities available to you and your family when deciding if an NGFS education is within reach.

Families of students in grades K-12 who are concerned they may not be able to afford a New Garden Friends School education may apply for financial aid. Aid awards are unavailable for preschool students (A Child's Garden).

Families can choose to pay tuition in one payment, twice/year, or in monthly installments.
