Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition & Financial Aid

The Circle School admits students without regard to family financial ability and strives to be affordable to families of all income levels through our financial aid program.


Financial aid is based on household income and individual circumstances, including family size. Every family is different, and the only way to know your final tuition costs is by filing a financial aid application. In order to give you a sense, though, of what your cost might be, typical monthly costs, assuming a nine-month payment plan, are given in the table below.

Estimated typical approximate monthly tuition costs after financial aid, 2024-2025*

*An annual fee of $625 per child applies in addition to costs shown in the table. Cost figures are estimates of typical households; results vary based on household size, income source, and other factors. Financial aid is based on family financial need as assessed by a Federal formula adapted to the region and the school’s budget.

To find out exactly what your family’s tuition costs will be, click on the link below to complete the online Financial Aid Application ($50 processing fee) at any time with no obligation. Results are usually mailed or emailed within a week of filing. Before OR after you complete the Financial Aid Application, come in for a campus tour and visit with our admissions staff.

The median income of our enrolled families closely matches the median income of the surrounding area.
