Tuition & Financial Aid

Annie Wright Schools' small class sizes, world class faculty, excellent facilities and innovative programming require a significant investment by parents, and we honor the sacrifices of many of our families to make education a priority. To offset expenses, opportunities such as year-round Preschool programming, Middle School journeys and other special programming are included in tuition. Families are also supported by thousands of alumni, friends and community members who continue to give to our Annual Fund, which helps offset tuition.

Year-Round Preschool Program

Preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds include optional before- and after-care and coverage during school breaks at no additional charge! Summer programming is also included upon re-enrollment. Learn more.

Financial Aid

Annie Wright Schools are committed to making our programs as accessible as possible. In addition to flexible payment plans, we offer need-based financial aid to families in our community who would not otherwise be able to access an Annie Wright education. While Annie Wright Schools do not offer full tuition scholarships, need-based aid packages often provide the necessary support. More than 40% of Annie Wright families currently receive some form of financial aid.

Please contact Joy Phelps for Preschool to Grade 8 or Alyssa Harvey for Grades 9-12 if you would like more information on tuition and financial aid options.
