To start, each school’s tuition varies depending on a number of factors including where it’s located and what type of school it is (ex: traditional or boarding). Many private schools are willing to working with parents and offer scholarships or other payment options in order to help cover the costs, so it's a good idea to contact the school(s) of your choice directly to ask about their fee structure and what they might be able to offer in terms of financial aid. This is also a good opportunity to ask about the school’s teaching philosophy, health policies and food preparation. Scheduling a tour of the school is an excellent way to get an idea of the environment, visit with teachers and staff and ask more questions as well.
