Tuition and Financial Assistance
Investing in your child’s future today can make a difference tomorrow. Catlin Gabel graduates are ready to not only advance their education but to also make a difference in whatever field of study they pursue. As a school, we are committed to making a Catlin Gabel education affordable and accessible.
We believe that diversity in all its forms strengthens our community and exposes students to new ideas and different perspectives. We encourage families to apply for admission even if the cost of the published tuition seems out of reach. More than a quarter of our student body receives financial assistance through need-based tuition or merit scholarships. Last year, most families who received financial assistance had annual household incomes between $27,945 to $334,470.
The application deadline for Financial Assistance has now passed. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022-23 school year.
