Below you’ll find the total cost of a year at Friends, including tuition, fees, breakfast and lunch, and all required trips. At Friends, we believe that affording the academic experience should be accessible to all families, regardless of their financial profile. In an effort to make Friends affordable to all, the School offers financial aid packages toward the total cost of tuition and fees.
Depending on students’ engagement in school life, there may be additional costs beyond tuition for optional experiences, like our global education trips or our after school programming. For families who receive financial aid, we offer support for most of these costs beyond tuition (see this page
for more information). Part of our mission is to ensure that all students have access to the full depth and breadth of the Friends experience.
*In the Upper School, certain books and supplies are not included in tuition and are additional costs. Financial aid may be available toward these costs.

||$2,500 (One-time fee upon enrollment; financial aid may apply toward this fee)
Upon enrollment or re-enrollment, we require a deposit (generally between $10,000 and $15,000 per student) for new and returning families. For families receiving financial aid, the deposit amount is adjusted according to their percentage of aid and total tuition cost. To ensure families have a variety of ways to manage their balance, Friends offers three payment plans determined upon enrollment: a one-installment plan, a two-installment plan, and a nine-installment plan.
