Because Park Tudor is a private school, we must charge tuition to cover our operating expenses. But tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Park Tudor education; it represents only about 70% of the school's operating budget income. Each year, generous donations to the school's Annual Fund and a draw from our endowment contribute significantly toward each student's education.
In 2018-19, Park Tudor awarded more than $3.8 million in financial aid and merit awards to 34% of our student population. The average amount of a financial aid award was $11,300.
Many families would like to provide their children with a private school education but assume they cannot afford it. Many financial aid options, including payment plans, need-based financial aid and merit scholarships, are available to help families cover the cost of tuition.
Awards are granted to families from a variety of financial backgrounds, including those who may have a high level of demonstrated need and those who may require only minimal financial assistance.
