King School Students

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 students to attend our wonderful school.

At this time, we have finalized Financial Access for the 2020-2021 school year. Please email Nina Newman at for all questions pertaining to Financial Access.


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, or 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. Families contribute from $5,000 to $40,000 in tuition annually. 

For the 2019-20 academic year, King offset tuition by nearly $4 million; approximately 20% of students enroll at King with affordable tuition made possible through Financial Access.

The Financial Access Committee uses School and Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to assess each family’s individual capacity. 

We welcome and encourage families to contact us about financial access – particularly those families who assume they will not qualify. For more information about qualifications and eligibility, please see the Frequently Asked Questions below.
