Flexible Tuition

What is Flexible Tuition?

Flexible Tuition is a program that reflects Seven Hills’ strong commitment to provide access for families of all income levels. It is a need-based assistance tuition program, designed to flex with the financial circumstances of families who qualify. 

Why Has Seven Hills Established Flexible Tuition?

We know that, in this era of mounting educational costs, many families who might not expect to qualify for traditional financial aid could, in fact, afford a school like Seven Hills if only the price could be adjusted to accommodate their other obligations. So, Flexible Tuition allows families who qualify to pay a lower tuition amount, one that is customized to fit their unique financial profile.


To determine eligibility we use the financial information which families provide to an independent agency, to calculate a price that makes sense for each family’s situation. A family’s income, savings, mortgage, and other debt considerations, as well as the number of children, are all factored into the assessment. Because every family’s situation is different and even a small amount of reduced tuition can make a critical difference, Seven Hills encourages all families to apply for Flexible Tuition if they think they may qualify.
