Tuition & Affordability

The Philadelphia School is committed to ensuring that a TPS education is accessible to a socio-economically diverse student body. Approximately $2M of tuition assistance is distributed annually to 25% of TPS families. Our Tuition Assistance Program is need based and assistance ranges from 5-90% of tuition. Families from a variety of income levels qualify, and we encourage all interested families to apply. In addition to offering tuition assistance, The Philadelphia School offers an extended payment plan that allows families to spread tuition payments over ten months.

We are deeply appreciative to receive tuition assistance for our son as he enters 7th grade. The arc of his education from preschool to present has been an extraordinary experience; with this more affordable tuition we are so thrilled to enable his continued growth among the peers and teachers that bring out the best in him. TPS Parent
