Individual Family Tuition
At The Berkeley School, one of our strategic goals is equity and inclusion which includes affording tuition. We understand that these are uncertain times financially for some, so we invite the conversation about planning financially for enrollment.
We encourage you to participate in the Individual Family Tuition program if you think you’ll need some level of support to meet the cost of attendance. If you have questions about the process or forms, please contact Amy Coty in the TBS Business Office.
Our approach to tuition is based on the belief that a family’s financial commitment to education should be in equitable proportion to its financial resources. Therefore, we offer Individual Family Tuition to all families.
Some of our families choose to pay stated tuition, while others provide their family’s financial information to the school through an online third party application in order to determine a tuition level that is right for their family.
Individual Family Tuition is determined separately but at the same time as admission, so families are notified of tuition when they receive their offer of admission.
How to Participate
Provide a Parents’ Financial Statement through our partners at School and Student Services (SSS) beginning October 1, 2019.
There are required documents that you will be asked to sumbit.
All parenting adults, including those who are separated, divorced, non-custodial, or unmarried must be included in the PFS.
How Does This Work?
The Berkeley School uses this assessment as the basis for determining a family’s tuition level, taking into account available funding and the overall size of the participant pool. Families participating in the Individual Family Tuition program must indicate interest and provide their financial information every year.
Deadlines are critical.
If you’re not able to provide the information necessary to complete your application by the deadline, you should discuss your situation with Amy Coty to determine if an accommodation can be made.
Only one PFS is required for multiple TBS children.
