Sage Ridge School 2017-2018 Tuition
Thank you for considering Sage Ridge School.
Tuition at Sage Ridge School for Grades 5-12 in the 2017-18 school year is $21,000. Tuition for Grade 4 is $18,000. We recognize that this is a major investment in your child’s education and future. To assist families in affording this educational choice, we offer payment options and each year Sage Ridge School’s Board of Trustees designates a certain percentage of the School’s overall revenue budget to be used for financial aid purposes. The goal is to ensure that a Sage Ridge education is available to all qualified students regardless of their parents’ financial resources.
Financial considerations should not discourage a qualified student from applying for admission to Sage Ridge School. Families who question their ability to meet the cost of an education at SRS should request information on financial aid from the Director of Admissions as early as possible in the application process.
Sage Ridge financial aid is based on need. We do not offer grants for merit or athletics.
In determining need, the guidelines of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), an organization used by independent schools nationwide, are followed. A family must submit completed financial aid forms to FAST for each school year. Families who miss the deadlines for the financial aid application, or who do not return the re-enrollment contract with the deposit by specified deadline, risk losing their award. If a student is applying for admission after the deadlines below, but is interested in financial aid, the dates below do not apply, and the family should proceed with the FAST application regardless of the dates.
It is important to note that admissions decisions and financial aid awards are decided separately and that all financial aid information is strictly confidential.
The FAST application must be completed each year that financial aid is requested. Below is the timeline for applying for financial aid for the 2016-2017 school year.
