Financial Access

Throughout King School’s history, the school has sought to enroll the most capable and talented students.

At King School, we seek to make an independent school education affordable for families from a wide range of economic backgrounds. Some of our families pay a small percentage of the full tuition, while others can pay the majority of tuition. While considering King School as an educational opportunity for your child(ren), remember that it is our goal to make it possible for great kids to join our exceptional community.

At King School, we understand that affordability is relative, and each family situation is unique.

For this reason, we are committed to using a personalized assessment process to calculate tuition. We take into consideration families who may also pay tuition elsewhere, care for an elderly parent, or face other legitimate expenses. We seek to enroll bright and engaged children of working parents who can pay part of the King School tuition. 

King offsets tuition by over $4 million; approximately 21% of students enroll at King with affordable tuition made possible through Financial Access.

Financial access applications must be submitted through our partner Clarity. Based on the financial information provided in the Clarity application, Clarity will recommend what a family can contribute towards their educational expenses. The Financial Access Committee uses the recommendations made by Clarity to inform an equitable financial access decision-making process.  In addition to partnering with Clarity, King School consults with Mission Enrollment, a confidential third-party company that supports our Financial Access Review Committee and helps optimize the fair and equitable distribution of financial aid.

We welcome and encourage families to contact us about financial access – particularly those families who assume they will not qualify. Please see the frequently asked questions below for more information about qualifications and eligibility.
