Tuition & Affordability
The McGillis School remains committed to building a diverse and inclusive community.
Our tuition assistance budget for the 2020/2021 school year totals $650,000 and was distributed to 25% of our students. Applying for tuition assistance has absolutely no impact on admission decisions. Our goal is to support families who demonstrate financial need, which is calculated using the School & Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS).
By determining what each family can contribute to tuition, the Committee allocates awards ranging from $1,500 to $11,000 and average $6,000 depending on each applicant’s financial situation.

McGillis is more than academics. It’s knowing your children are with other children whose families want to focus on raising well-rounded, conscientious human beings."Amy Taylor, Parents of Zach ‘14, Kaitlyn, ‘16, & Owen ‘21
In recognizing that each individual family bears the primary responsibility for financing a student’s education cost, The McGillis School maintains a commitment to building a diverse and inclusive community.
